In the fight of good against evil
lines are sometimes blurred
a well-placed question …
      a soft-spoken lie …

Those who are desperate can be deceived, and find themselves fighting for the one who is about to destroy them.

But not all are so easily swayed. Against their own self-doubts they stand for the truth, no matter the cost. And though few stand with them, they will never back down.

Not for peace. Not for wealth.
Not for their lives.
