Sometimes, we are so focused on the darkness and the nastiness of the fallen world that we forget that there has been a Divine Invasion. Sometimes, we are so occupied with battling the demons and shadows that escaped Pandora's Box that we neglect to remind ourselves that the box also contained the the little winged fairy of Hope.

This story of an unlikely couple is a reminder that giving into despair and fatalism is not necessary:
It was pure chance that [Chris] Dempsey came into [Heather] Krueger’s life.

The code-enforcement officer in Frankfort, Ill., overheard one of his co-workers talk about a cousin who was dying of cancer and desperately needed a liver transplant.

Dempsey readily agreed to get tested to see if he was a match.

“I spent four years in the Marine Corps and learned there never to run away from anything,” he explained to CBS News. “So I just said to myself, ‘Hey, if I can help, I’m going to help.’ ”

He turned out to be a match.
All that is necessary to resist evil is the knowledge that sometimes, occasionally, against all odds, the good guys sometimes win.
