Justice.
A word so universal, so real.
Yet it is so lacking in our world.
There are so many questions to ask.
Why are there so many cases of child abuse?
Why should the innocent suffer?
None of us can answer.
Yet it is true.
What?
What reasoning is there to murder the young and weak?
There is none.
Yet we are indifferent.
Where?
Where does it say that the good must bear the burden of the actions of the evil?
Nowhere.
Yet it occurs.
Who?
Who said that it is fair to take the blood of the decent?
Nobody.
Yet we see it happen.
When?
When will this injustice end?
It is we who can answer this.
Who will stand for those who cannot stand up for themselves?
Nobody should suffer like this.
It is our duty to put a stop to child abuse.
Each and every one of us can help put a stop to this inequity.
