Sunday Reflection: Fairness

As we have seen lately life is so not fair. It can be annoying that way. Things are difficult for everyone. The Rolling Stones sang you can’t always get what you want, that is wisdom for everyone. No one can win all the time. Life is set up for some adversity and the lessons taught there are valuable.

Fairness is something hoped for however it isn’t always what you get. The world has lost so many good people in the past few months that its very human to ask where the fairness is here. It can be tough for all of us to keep going when there is always something that can smack you across the face and make you feel like nothing is going right. When we see injustice happening it’s understandable to say something isn’t fair.

Everyone should have some level of anger when you experience an unfair level of strife and disappointment. No matter what you must keep moving. Remember there are a lot of people who are going through the same thing. While someone gets away with all sorts of things, fairness can be a source of justice.

Sticking together can keep you going when the chips are down. No matter what time in your life you are entitled to ask why things aren’t fair. Someone has an answer, that’s fair enough I would think.
