Wide-Open Windows into Evil

I believe there are moments in history when we’re presented with wide-open windows into evil. At those times, a mass of people who have not seen the evil–because of ignorance, deception, or a deliberate turning away–may finally be pressed to look while the window is wide-open and the evil is illuminated. The Planned Parenthood videos and the exposure given to the luring away and killing of Zimbabwe’s Cecil are two such windows. In each case, the evil goes deeper than the slice we see (55 million aborted in this country alone; 20,000 species nearing extinction). Those who wish to see evil pushed back need to use everything in their power–especially while the window is open–to push and push hard to expose what has been lying, lurking, and liquidating life in dark corners.
