what we MUST do in response to evil and darkness…

Darkness works by sucking more darkness, bitterness, hate, vitriol, evil, animus, revenge, hostility,  venom, rancor etc. into the black hole of malignancy. But we do not, we cannot, we will not defeat evil by responding to it in kind. The only effective intervention to end darkness is light. The only way to overcome fear is through love. The only way to effect positive change is via positive means.
