In the Sky With Diamonds

“We shall find peace. We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.” ― Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

People talk about the spoils of war, the land acquired and the riches procured.

But to sleep soundly, knowing that the children are safe from harm.

To know your relatives do not need to worry about attack.

To be able to walk down the street and not fear for your life.

These are the rewards of battle, the treasures of triumph.
