Good vs. Evil

Good triumphs over evil.

This isn't something that only happens in stories. It happens every day, all over the world. Why? Because (I believe) people are inherently good creatures. If we were inherently evil, wouldn't we have killed ourselves off by now?

What we have done, especially as Americans in our post-9/11 world, is triumph over evil. This is a recurring theme in books, movies, folklore, and fairy tales for a reason. We want to live in a happy, peaceful place. We want to know the children of the world are safe. We want good to win Every. Single. Time.

It may not happen overnight. But it will - and does - happen. This is a long war, that started at the dawn of time and shall continue until its dusk. For all those touched by evil, outshine it with your good. Today, secretly, do something kind for someone else. No recognition, no glory, no gold...just because you are inherently good.

Good. It's a great word.
