The evil, good men do....

"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing."
~ Albert Einstein

"All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing."
~Edmund Burke

I've touched on this in a previous post.

The greatest danger to our freedom is when good men do nothing.

I believe that to do good or to do evil is a choice. As human beings, we are born with the capacity to do both and at some point we choose which path to follow.

I challenge you who read this to take a long hard look at your own life and ask yourself what choice you've made. Every action we take is a choice we make…how do these choices affect us and what impact do our choices have on others. In the case of "good men doing nothing"; that is a choice and the impact is disastrous.

As difficult as it is, we should rise above the immediate "crises" in our lives and strive to do good for the betterment of not just ourselves, but for all of us.

Think, reflect, learn....

God says “I am who is.”

The devil says “I am who is not.”
