One day, there was a soldier, he loved making peace with other people. But one day, a war started. The soldier was forced to fight. So, he trudged up to some enemy troops holding spears. ''Surrender!'' shouted an army general. The soldier hesitated, before shouting back, ''NOT UNTIL WE DIE!'' The war lasted long. But, thanks to the soldier, they won. So the soldier went to Zeus to pray. When he got to the temple, he saw a large stone. The soldier went to look at the stone and let out a sharp cry. For engraved on the stone were his own words, ''Not until we die'' said the soldier.
