One sought to slaughter innocents. The other sought to protect them.
One spun lies. The other spoke truth.
One was self-absorbed. The other self-aware.
One wielded power. The other asked for help.
One ordered his troops to attack. The other called on his people to defend.
One longed for yesterday. The other cherished today.
One cast a shadow. The other shone a light.
Inside each of them were seeds, the seeds that lay dormant inside each of us. Like them, we choose which seed to water.
