George was a simple man who had been Station Master at the same desolate railway station for forty-five years.  Each day, George found something new in the peaceful surroundings.

Times had changed, but George hadn’t.  Each month, he and his wife sent money abroad to their sponsored child.

The nature of war had changed.  A policeman waited with George while the Bomb Squad checked the Russian suitcase.

‘Signal’s clear!’

The suitcase open, George saw money and a letter.

“Dear Parents, thank you for the many years of money.  Now I peace envoy I send back money.  Your son, Igor.”
