there are many forms of evil in this world, we all know that. most people define it as “morally wrong or wicked”, but I would like to expand on that. in my mind those who stand back and allow evil acts to be committed but do not step forth and stop them are just as evil as the process itself. while I understand that not every battle is worth fighting and that sometimes we all just need to be silent, I think that we all know in our gut when it’s time to step up. some people choose to follow this instinct and some people choose to stand back and let the chips fall where they may. there is always calm before the storm, but do not let yourself become so use to this calm that you do not notice when there are suddenly ripples in the water and a snap to the air. by then it may be too late.
