    This is a Native American Indian (Cherokee) wisdom tale there is no known author. Great job Gavin Aung Than with the artwork and depiction!

    You are correct.
    Indian lore.
    As the young one grows she will witness how the fight grows. Her decisions will decide which one wins.
    A friend of mine years ago was the son of full blood Indian from Kentucky. He was Shawnee.
    He explained it this way.
    There will always be good and there will always be evil.
    It is a fight that never ends for evil is never truly vanquished. There will always be evil and there will always be good to kept the balance.
    And many times it is good to be evil. Many times even necessary.

    Is it good to kill?? Is it good to take away your freedom??
    Would be a way to look at it.
    A soldier kills to defend his country and homeland. Killing another person is evil but it done for good.
    A policeman has to arrest a good person for a crime. When arrested you loose your rights and freedom which is evil. But the policeman does it for good.
    When I came back from Nam I was labeled a baby killer, murderer, war criminal. As a cop I have been labeled a thief, liar, ruining a childs Christmas, tearing families apart, taking away your freedoms.
    Is doing these jobs evil?? or good??
    Think of that when a soldier puts him or herself into harms way to defend your freedom. Look at the cop on the beat making sure the real “evil” does not make you a victim.
    Just when they deal directly with you will you see their actions as evil or good?

    In other words the definition of evil can vary depending on what “evil” is being done.
    Killing to end a war. Killing is evil but it is good using evil to end the war.
    Arresting a suspected drunk driver is evil because his/her freedom is taken away but it is good because using that evil prevents the car crash that kills the family ahead.
    So sometimes it is good to be evil. Many times even necessary.
