When it seemed that Simon had lost all hope, something amazing happened. He was in the process of organizing his closet when a box fell from the top shelf. The box burst open and he discovered a picture from his adolescence depicting a scene that he had long since forgotten.
While fighting in Poland, Simon and his comrade became injured on the battlefield and were taken in and cared for by a Polish woman named Kamilia. Simon formed a close bond with Kamilia. She was like the mother he never had. Her compassion surprised him. He could not believe that she was caring for him, one of the enemies, one of the tyrants. This Polish woman was a strong factor in determining how Simon would later feel about the atrocities he committed during war time.
After staring at the photo for a long while, Simon came to a decision about his life. He could sit inside and sulk about what he had done, or he could go out into the world and make a difference, make up for his mistakes. Simon started living his life to the fullest, helping everyone that he could along the way.
Among many other heroic acts, Simon was later credited with saving this lady from drowning.
In 1967, while visiting Yellow Stone National Park in the USA, Simon tried to save a man that had fallen into a hot spring. He saved the man, but in the process, Simon also fell into the hot spring and was boiled alive.

Simon slams back another shot of whiskey and draws his gaze down to the old photo he is holding in his lap.
He sighs and a hint of a smile comes to his face. Those were the good old days he thought to himself, running amuck with the old brigade. A tear escapes from his eye and runs down to the tip of his snout, he lifts a paw and wipes it away. He then lets out a great belly laugh as he glances back at Hans and Dieter posing up front like the couple of goofs they were. They always knew exactly what to do or say to make Simon laugh. It was times like these that made Simon forget about the harsh reality of the war, and the cruel violence that he inflicted upon his enemies with his teeth and his claws. They made him do things, unthinkable things, things that he never thought he was capable of doing. As a result, whenever possible, Simon would drink himself into a drunken stupor in a futile attempt to escape the harsh realm of reality.
Then the war ended, times changed and Simon had to integrate back into society. He picked up a few jobs here and there entertaining at childrens’ parties,
but he could never shake the horrific memories from the war. Simon moves the photo aside, leans back in his big recliner and drifts off to a time when it all made sense, when his life had a purpose, when a bear named Simon ruled the battlefield.
