COT: I just finished a book about a Senegalese soldier and the atrocities of war. At the end of the book, he relays a tale about a princess looking to marry a prince with “no scars, and no history.” All the known princes had battle scars, but a prince from an unknown kingdom came forward with no scars, and the princess fell in love. The princess’s nurse was wary of the prince, but the princess married him anyway, and began the journey to his distant kingdom. Along the way, she discovers the prince is actually a sorcerer in disguise, and she makes various attempts to escape. In the end, the prince transforms into a lion and attacks the princess. Before he can leap onto her, though, an arrow shoots out of the woods, and he’s struck dead, scarring the land. The princess marries the hunter who fired the arrow, a man covered in scars from an adventurous life. One of the morals from the tale is that it’s the scars that give you your story and give you a history. Scars don’t make you unworthy of love but are something to be valued for what they make us.
