Fight the Night

“This is the season when people of all faiths and cultures are pushing back against the planetary darkness.”
—Anita Diamant

The days are getting darker, and not just the coming of winter as inevitably happens.  There is a darkness, a malaise of the soul and a deterioration of principles and standards creeping across the globe.

People are ruder.

People are less empathetic.

There is a desperation and a coldness to people’s actions.

Push back against the dark.

Do not let your warm flame perish.  Nurture it.  Spread it.  Encourage it in others.

Do not curse the darkness but kindle more candles in the night to keep the shadows at bay.
