Justice, Anyone?

In a country wherein majority of the people are living below the poverty line and survival of the fittest is the only fair game. In a country wherein severe graft and corruption are rampant yet the government do nothing about it, nor the people, even the church. In a country wherein the justice system is ambiguous, uncertain, questionable. In a country wherein the people no longer believe that the state can feed them food, give them shelter, provide proper health care, render good education, save their souls and leaving the country is the sole option of the people. In a country where hope has vanished and trust never is a concept.

When do we know that justice is being served? Or will justice still be served? What should be the bases of justice here? Who shall be allowed to seek justice? To whom shall justice be granted?

What is justice, anyway? Or is there still such a word?

  1. we know that justice is served when there is peace and harmony among each and every nation. when one day we wake up filled with security, joy and happiness. but im afraid its not happening anytime soon. Betty Calderon
