If you don't face and confront the evil done to you, you will become that evil.
This really came to mind this morning... Those of us on a search for truth and to live in reality can't escape this. It is unavoidable and it only follows that great courage is needed, and also that it is a PROCESS. If you know you that you are at least moving in that direction, then you know you are on the right path, though it is so painful sometimes. Little victories can be celebrated, though brought by great sweat and tears. It is amazing to me the power greater than oneself to keep on this path.
I watched "The Fellowship of the Ring" again last night and the courage Frodo and his friends demonstrated was very inspiring to me. Frodo had a burden no one else had, but his friends weren't about to leave him, especially one friend, no matter what the cost was-- evil could not, would not, prevail; a fellowship was needed. I love this trilogy (despite the ugly site of the orcs...) It has such a profound message...
