Evil isn’t ugly

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Wicked Witch.”

Write about evil: how you understand it (or don’t), what you think it means, or a way it’s manifested, either in the world at large or in your life.

I once read that if evil was ugly, the world would be good.

Thing is, evil isn’t grotesque. Evil has many faces, and we know it can masquerade as good, as normal, or even as omission of action (ie. doing nothing).

I believe evil is when someone intentionally hurts another person – and doesn’t feel remorseful. I don’t know if there are people who are wholly 100% evil, but I do know that people have moments of it.

Sometimes it’s as simple as a choice: do I do this? Do I not? In a split second we determine who we are. The good thing is, we get to make this choice every moment of the day. So make the good ones. Be the best we can be.
