The Syrian chemical weapons crisis has brought to mind these words written by Peace Pilgrim, a unique woman who walked more than 25,000 miles, penniless and homeless to promote world peace.

“Those who create something which is evil in order to overcome something else which is evil only double the evil.  Evil cannot be overcome by more evil.  Evil can only be overcome by good.”

America seemed to heave a collective sigh of relief when a ray of light was shone on the problem.  We are tired of war.  We have learned hard and expensive lessons.

It’s really just simple physics:

Darkness cannot be overcome by more darkness.

Only light can overcome darkness.

The same applies to evil.
