Peace and justice are two sides of the same coin. – Dwight D. Eisenhower
Justice, when you get down to it, is fairness. Peace can only exist with justice. Justice allows for peace. So what is Just? A society decides.
Our courthouse is a beautiful building. Atlas holds up the doorways as he held up the world. The clock tower shines high above. Lady Justice and Lady Liberty adorn the facade. Old Glory waves in the breeze above. Old courthouses are beautiful. They show the importance that justice has held in our society. Determine who is lawful and who is not and dispensing punishment proportionate to the crime.
If the people receive justice, there is peace. No justice, no peace. War, civil unrest, and crime all stem from some form of perceived injustice, real or imagined. I believe, if people and nations talk, cooperate, and compromise, then peace can be obtained, internationally and in neighborhoods. Confrontations and misunderstanding will always happen, but communication is key to diffusing any situation.
