Justice, Peace and Forgiveness

The road to justice and peace is long and arduous.
And the only one that will truly get us there is the road paved with forgiveness.
When I am wronged, I want justice and retribution;
but when I do wrong I desire mercy and forgiveness.
In a world so full of injustice and oppression,
justice is needed to restore balance and equilibrium in society.
One wise man once said: “If you want peace, work for justice.”
In most action movies today (and these are often blockbusters),
people want to see justice served in the end
and for goodness to triumph over evil with only the good guy left standing.
But the quest for justice can become corrupted
and degenerate into an endless cycle of violence and revenge.
Justice alone is not enough.
Mercy and forgiveness is a bigger victory over evil
for it breaks the cycle of violence and revenge.
It is the stronger man who can seek justice and can also forgive.
