I’m in the middle of reading Road to Valour and I find myself asking
“Would I, a good woman, allow evil to prevail by doing nothing;
or worse still, would I be duped by evil failing to recognise its disguise and join its ranks?
or would I have the courage to meet evil in the eye and do my very best to vanquish it, in the knowledge that I could be tortured and killed;”
The answer is it is not until we find ourselves in the situation that we truly know the answer.
As a result I am exceedingly grateful that I live in a country and at a time where my character is not tested in such a way.
To the extraordinary women and men who throughout history demonstrated great courage in the fight against evil, we are forever in your debt. We must always remember your bravery and what you fought for, so when evil greets us, we see through its disguise and fight it, just as you did. By doing so we honour you and more importantly we honour Good.
The faith we must follow and believe in is that Good Prevails, to lose this faith means that evil in fact has prevailed.
And yet I wonder if the best way to fight evil is to create even more good.
And this is something that each and every person is capable of doing in some small way each and every day.
What Good did you create today?
