Story about peace for children: The arrows of the warrior
Of all the warriors in the service of the evil Morlan, Jero was the fiercest, and the most cruel. His eyes discovered even the most cautious enemies, and his bow and arrows were responsible for executing them.
One day, looting a great palace, the warrior found some fast and brilliant arrows that had belonged to the princess of the place, and did not hesitate to keep them for some special occasion.
As soon as those arrows joined the rest of Jero's weapons, and knew their terrible cruelty, they protested and lamented bitterly. They, accustomed to the games of the princess, were not willing to kill anyone.
There's nothing to do! - said the other arrows -. It will be your turn to kill some poor traveler, to kill a horse or something else, but do not dream of returning to your old life ... "Something will come to mind," the newcomers replied.
But the archer never separated from his bow and arrows, and they could get to know Jero's terrifying life up close. So much traveled by his side, they discovered the sadness and reluctance in the eyes of the warrior, to understand that this ruthless fighter had never seen anything else.
After the time, the archer received the mission to finish off the king's daughter, and Jero thought that the occasion was well worth spending one of his arrows. He prepared himself as always: hidden among the bushes, his eyes fixed on the victim, the bow tense, the arrow ready, wait for the right moment and ... let go!
But the arrow did not pierce the beautiful girl's heart. Instead, he made a strange, slow and majestic flight, and went to dig himself next to some lilies of incredible beauty. Jero, surprised, approached and picked up the stunned arrow. But in doing so, he could not stop seeing the delicate and beautiful flower, sintió and felt that he had never seen anything so beautiful
... A few minutes later, he returned to look at his victim, to carry a new arrow and to tense the bow. But again he missed the shot, and after another strange flight, the bright arrow went to a tree, just at a point from which Jero could hear the freshest and happiest songs of a group of birds ... así And so, one after another, the brilliant arrows failed their shotsto show the warrior the small details that fill the world with beauty
. Arrow to arrow, his eyes and hunter's mind were transformed, until the last arrow ended up just a few meters away from the young woman, from where Jero could observe her beauty, the same that he himself was on the verge of destroy.
Then the warrior awoke from his nightmare of death and destruction, eager to change it for a dream of beauty and harmony. And after ending the evils of Morlan, he abandoned his life as an assassin forever and devoted all his efforts to protect life and everything worthwhile. He only kept the bow and his bright arrows, which always knew how to show him the best place to look.
