Injustice and Justice


Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Martin Luther King, Jr. 1963

And anyone who stands in the gap for one stands for all--thank you Dr. King.

Terri - well said! See, injustice and justice will always be linked, not just alphabetically! To recognize the injustices in the world, folks must initially understand the concept of justice. I think the problem lies in the prejudice or preconceived views that those in "power" or fine circumstances often have. i.e.: "nothing is wrong in my life, how can that not be true for you?"
Thank you for an inspiring take on the world, and what work we might have in it! kathy

Kathy, thank you for your kind words! I think people exempt themselves by accepting their own perception of truth as truth, by laying blame, and a whole host of other ways. I think people also have to recognize their own role in creating justice or injustice around them.
