Is evil more creative than good? I’m not sure. I can’t say whether the world is getting better or worse but this sort of story reminds me that evil may not be more creative than good but it might be more desperate.

In one of my favorite movies, “The Mission” with Rob DeNiro, at the end (spoiler alert) you see several young children canoeing. They are alone and too young to be on their own but they are all that are left from their tribe.

In this news story, perhaps it should read: The darkness shades but it could not overcome the light.
