When Darkness Descends

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
George Santayana

What if we weren't permitted to speak any longer? What if our country was run by a dictatorial genius who held a dark secret and our future in the palm of his hand?

Could it happen, friends? I know of past times when the will of one madman ruled a country and tried to eliminate a whole race of people.

Frightening death camps, families torn apart, the fate of their loved ones unknown. Belongings, all they held dear, taken from them. Hard labor, starvation, death.

It scares me to think there are people who say "the Holocaust never happened." There are those who may never know of the reign of terror of one man, Adolph Hitler. Since I was a very young girl, it has bothered me, thinking that one person could dominate an entire nation and have his evil henchmen do his bidding. How he or any man could decide the fate of who lives and who dies.

In honor of the Jewish people, I have written a story to keep their memories alive. No, it's not always good to ponder the bad, but I believe that our future generations must remember.....must never ever forget. For how else will they keep evil at bay?

Though it's a futuristic society I've written about, think about it. It could happen. Are we headed there already? Who knows. Only you can change it. Let's not let darkness win.

Take a moment to view this powerful trailer. Take a moment to ponder.


  1. Hopefully society will never face those challenges again.
