Thought for Today

Evil is like a shadow - it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it.

Hmmmm. . . . I think that evil is more than just the absence of light. I have felt it; it is palpable, and terrifying.

Evil absolutely has its own substance. I have come into contact with it in my life and it is palpable and terrifying, just as Rob-bear said.
