Often many suffer as a result of the sins of a few—or even the tyranny of one individual. From the cruelty of a dictatorship to rampant crime in a community to the dishonesty and greed that would undermine an economy, we find that innocent people are often victimized.

The injustice is obvious. But what can we do about it? Sometimes the choices are painful, as when nations reluctantly take up arms in order to stop oppression. But there's a choice we can make to help lessen the occurrence of such tragedies. It's the choice to learn more of God as a sure defense and, even more important, to conform our own lives increasingly to divine law.

Will peace always be elusive?
