War is HellThe HitmanAs his older brother puts it: “Look, little brother, I loveyou to death, but...you don’t quite live on planet Earth,if you know what I’m saying. I know you mean well, butsometimes - sometimes you kind of forget that your actionshave consequences in the real world.”The Hitman hasn’t quite come of age yet. As a child hecreated imaginary worlds inhabited by fantastic animals.His surroundings haven’t lost their last remnant of magicyet. Everything is still possible. The world is his for thetaking. And war is an adventure waiting for him. Thedays where he played in the garden pretending to be asoldier might be gone, but the child inside him still holdson to the memories. He still holds on to the innocenceof childhood.As his mother puts it: “You have always had trouble fallingasleep. Sheer excitement would keep you awake onthe nights leading up to your birthdays. At other timesyou imagined monsters in the darkness outside your windowand refused to fall asleep, fearing they would comefor you while you slept.”Two words have always characterized the Hitman:excitement and fear. These feelings in equal measurehave dominated his childhood, fighting within him everyday. Some days one of them gained the upper hand, ondifferent days the other would set the agenda. But theywere always there, and they still are. Those two are whatdrives him, and what keeps him in check. Excitementand fear. It is that simple.2
