Thursday Thoughts...

'The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice' 

Martin Luther King

Somehow these words seem so apt right now - they offer some long term view of what we are observing and experiencing.  As we watch places where truth has been replaced by lies; where democracy has been eaten away by greed and has been set aside like an unwanted plaything; where force has become the only response; where human rights are trampled and mocked.

So much of this time is awful.

And yet Martin Luther King manages to remind us that the arc of the moral universe is long yet bends towards justice.  How I hope in so many ways it does.  That it not only bends towards justice but that it reaches it.  That is grabs hold of it and works with justice until a sense of decency, fairness and rightness prevails.

Please, may it bend towards justice for all of those disempowered and disenfranchised by our current settings.

Maybe that's what we need - double bending towards justice!


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
