But remember, also, Isaac and Ismael stood side by side at the grave of their father, Abraham.
I wonder how it felt when they realized they had been enemies all this time, and now stood shoulder to shoulder. I wonder also, how long the hatchet was buried after that. Or was it a very momentary lapse of enmity simply in their sorrow which robbed them of the energy to continue the fight for only a time.
I wonder what would have happened if they had st down on that occasion and talked, or maybe they did?
One could write an entirely different story, but then it might get boring. The world seems to prefer repeating rifles, six-shooters, bows and arrows, to friendly conversations in congress and peace pipes in wikiups.
