To defeat evil intentions

Albert Einstein once said, “The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” This point about the importance of being alert to evil has great meaning for me, especially in light of “lone wolf” attacks such as the shootings in Tucson, Arizona; Oslo, Norway; and more recently, the Seal Beach shooting in Los Angeles.

Not long after the Oslo attack, I was working with students in New York City. One of them asked: “Why does it seem that one evil act has so big an impact? Why can’t one good act have the same response?”
