When the Earth Mourns ~ Where is the #Justice?

8 Aug

“Why? Why do only selfish people live, but those with a heart and the righteous die? The heaven have made such a cruel choice. Is there no fairness in this world?”

~ Wei Zheng (Nirvana in Fire)

**I think perhaps it is this sense of Fairness and Justice that separates the good from the bad.  The good know what should be done and do it, regardless of benefit to themselves. The bad see only what they would like to be done, seeing only the benefit to themselves.  The less fairness the world displays, the worse you know things are.
