Sometimes, it’s very tempting to throw in the towel and resign yourself to the notion that we will never be able to establish justice in our society. After all, so many terrible things are happening. People are killing, robbing, and committing other heinous crimes and getting away with it. Even our justice system, which is supposed to effect positive change and retribution in our society, is flawed and corrupt. This results in the unjust prevailing and injustice running rampant all over our country. However, we need to keep fighting, because justice will prevail in the end.
One of the things that we can use to give us hope is to remind ourselves that we are making progress with justice. For example, we are increasing awareness of all of the unjust things that are happening. Everyday, more and more people are learning about all of the ways that justice is being shortchanged in our society. What is more, these people are getting angry (and rightfully so!) about the injustice that exists and are wanting to do something about it. This is a huge encouragement because it shows that justice still lives in the hearts of decent people everywhere. If we can round up enough of those people, we can have a voice for justice and further our agenda, which is to promote full justice in our society.
Because there are so many people becoming aware of injustice, our side is growing in strength and in numbers. Don’t give up on justice!
