An Alternative To Fury

What's the proper response to evil?

My weak, impulsive reaction plays directly into the hands of these demons. I first encountered them outside a funeral at my church several years ago. I flew into a rage and had to be restrained.

They attempted to desecrate the funeral of a slain serviceman not far from my home Friday morning. By the time I arrived to witness the atrocity, they'd departed, leaving behind a large police presence and the citizens on motorcycles pictured here. I understand that they were they to honor the dead man and his grieving family.

I found this simple vigil heroic.

(Note: I did absolutely no fact-checking in preparation of this post.)
