False and true heroes

How can anyone be called a hero
when he killed and maimed innocent people?

How can anyone be called a hero
when he killed and maimed defenceless children?

How can anyone be called a hero
when his weapon is terror and destruction?

It is easy to be a false hero.
But it takes part of your very self
to be a true and lasting hero.

A true hero’s weapon is peace.
A true hero’s weapon is dialogue.
A true hero’s weapon never kills.

It is easy to be a false hero.
But it takes peace to be a true hero.

A false hero blows up bridges.
A true hero builds bridges of peace.

Violence is the wrong weapon.
It destroys all and much more.

Peace can penetrate steel.
It can penetrate the invisible.
