Wicked Witch

The daily prompt today is a pretty full on one…Write about evil: how you understand it (or don’t), what you think it means, or a way it’s manifested, either in the world at large or in your life.

Right from when we are young we are taught about the evil characters in life…there’s the Wicked Witch from Wizard of Oz as seen above, along with the Big Bad Wolf from various fairy tales such as Three Little Pigs and Red Riding Hood.

However they don’t come close to true evil…the evil that confronts us every day on the news…the evil that makes the headlines that we don’t want to read about and don’t want to hear about…the headlines that turn our stomachs when we hear them or read them, but have no choice as they are normally the first stories on the news.

The headlines about horrible things that happen to children, they especially turn my stomach.  The headlines about the horrible things that people do to others, they turn my stomach.

They’re the headlines that we try to mask from the children in our lives and in our worlds.  They’re the headlines we would rather them not know about, not hear about, not ask questions about and definitely not experience.

We would prefer them to know about these types of evil, it’s slightly easier to explain to them.
