“I recently read in the The Overcast that the responsibility for social justice and change lays squarely on the people, not on the systems they are part of. The continual evidence regarding the failure of the Justice System to protect woman who are the victims of various forms of abuse is the most recent example that comes to mind. This kind of impunity bestows upon all of us the right and the responsibility to raise our voices in protest when injustice prevails?
There is a beautiful elegance to Martin Luther King Jr’s words: “There can be no justice without peace and there can be no peace without justice”.
What can be difficult to put into action is how we actually own our responsibility for the social justice and change we purport to champion and support. Not just for the few, but for the many. Sometimes the solutions have to be hard-won, other times, they can be beautifully simple.” – There Can Be No Peace without Justice
