They are not my thoughts, but I thought they are very telling as to the dark side we all have:
"Does this darkness have a name? This cruelty, this hatred, how did it find us? Does it steal into our lives or do we seek it out and embrace it? What happened to us that we now send our children into the world like we send young men to war. Hoping for their safe return but knowing that some will be lost along the way? When did we lose our way? Consumed by the shadows, swallowed whole by the darkness? Does this darkness have a name? Is it your name?"
