On December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, a deranged twenty-year-old male murdered his sleeping mother, then drove to an elementary school, and in a span lasting only three minutes, killed twenty children and six adult staff members with an assault rifle.

The world needs a functional and long term method for responding to evil rather than thinking revised laws or greater firepower will prevent imbalanced people from hurting others. Darkness has never gotten rid of darkness. All the spiritual traditions of the world have suggested the appropriate response to evil is with goodness or love, but few people have adopted or promoted goodness as their chosen method of response.

The author highlights sayings from the wisdom traditions, redefines evil in terms of immaturity or lack of development of individuals, explains how goodness helps to overcome evil, suggests things people can do to grow in their own maturity, and gives examples of random acts of kindness that a person can use to become an agent for change in the world.

This ebook is dedicated to the families whose loved ones were taken from them in the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012.
