It was the 8th of June 1191. A warm sun was above our heads. As we started seeing land in the Horizon. The Breeze was cold. As King Richard was inspiring the troops of what's to come. He shouted "Men, The conquest of the Holy land will bring up us. God's forgiveness and mercy.
For this journey will be a path to heaven. Do not be afraid for god is with us in what's to come". However my heart had it's doubts on what's to come. Anyway as we got closer to. We could see the city of Acre. George seemed happy and over the moon. But I doubted any good, Could come of this, George looked at me and saw worry in my eyes and asked "John, Are you alright ?" and then I replied "I don't know, George. I don't think going to war. Against people. Who didn't is god's answer of a righteous path".
George looked at me in surprise and said "But the pope, Said If we fight in the holy land, God will forgive our sins and have mercy on us all. Don't you want that, John ?" and I replied "As you say, George" I am still doubtful. But I didn't dwell on these thoughts for long.
However after 10 minutes our ships landed onto the shore and the King shouted "Alright men. Move all your gear ashore". and after two hours of setting camp. Night fell and we lit our torches and ate our meals in silence.
