On Eradicating Evil

“It was important, Dumbledore said, to fight,
and fight again,
and keep fighting,
for only then could evil be kept at bay,
though never quite eradicated. . . .”

– J K Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

  1. You already know it’ll never end – to some degree or other. Here’s a hug.

  2. Pat,

    I know, but it’s easier getting out of bed in the morning if I let myself believe in the slimmest chance of a defeat.

    I’ll take that hug. Thank you.

  3. Here is a hug from me too…albeit a little late. I hate when you feel duped by optimism. I usually beat myself up a little too for being shocked at evil’s arrival as I have only felt this way about 36 other times… Another big hug for good measure X

  4. Z,

    Naive of me, too, to think/hope/believe that there is this finite amount of evil out there and that once we’ve dealt with our “fair share” we get to be done.

    Ha.

    Thanks for the hug, Z. ;)
