Truth and Justice

 Why is it those who are fighting for truth and justice are often assassinated? People begin to think that evil is prevailing. Often, those fighting for justice, equal rights, freedom, are killed for their efforts. Look at Christ, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Bobby Kennedy, Che Guevara, Benazir Bhutto. Evil shot them down. One gets the notion that evil triumphs over good. But that's not so. If the liberators of the world retaliated, then evil wins. You have to hold yourself up, stay out of the quicksand of killing, guns, revenge. I had a guy e-mail me about my advocating non-violence. He said if l wasn't man enough to defend myself and my family, he would be willing to kill anyone trying to hurt us, as something of a favor. I said no thanks. He just doesn't get it.
