In the face of evil, the human spirit endures

(Continued)

What this story serves to remind us is that evil can never ultimately triumph over good because the human spirit when confronted with unspeakable horror is capable of repelling it with sheer resolve. That resolve is based on those things we need to hold dear each day: hope, love and making the center of life appreciation for those things that stir the human spirit.

Though so many did not have their Christmas this year, one child did.

I’ll start here then with this affirmation and begin the difficult journey of reconciling my heavy heart.
