There are some people in our lives – in all aspects of our lives – who have an illness, perhaps a deficiency, maybe it’s an injury, or even a congenital defect. Simply put, they don’t seem to have a “working soul.” No apparent element of morality. A seeming indifference to – if not a desire for – pain, hurt and harm to others. It’s important that we do not permit ourselves to fear evil people when we come upon them because that is what gives evil people their power over us. That is what they need to be as evil as they are. Sure, they might hurt or harm you. But remember, too, that they are much more likely to hurt or harm you, or those you care for, if you show them you fear them. Show them you are unafraid, and they are more likely to go away. And the one thing that evil people really, really fear? Your showing others you are unafraid, and that they can be that way, too. Give it some thought.

“If you do not punish evil, it will never stop.” Volodymyr Zelensky
