The bend towards justice

Justice is a powerful, loaded term. It conjures up images of superheros and war and a moral fight. I love this quote, I take courage from Dr King’s words that even in the midst of hatred and possible worse, apathy, that he clung to the belief that the moral arc bends towards justice.

Which is just another way of saying really, that he believed people would come good in the end. That we would choose to value the other, the ones not like us. To extend ourselves for those who are suffering and who don’t enjoy the privilege of clean water, nutritious food, affordable healthcare and education.

That we would shun materialism perhaps, and choose a better way. Less stuff, more heart.

He saw a continual, progressive triumph of what is right. A world in which Girls have equal access to education and violence and women and children is a thing of the past.

We work the way we do with Girls and women because we believe it’s the right thing to do. That we can make a difference and be part of that arc that bends towards justice.

And so we ask you to give, we train volunteers, we write policies that protect children in the communities where we work, we think of new ways to connect women with income generating opportunities and protect their environment at the same time, we work with schools to make education something that sets Girls up to fly.

We divine through our conscience that we are alive to be a part of something greater than ourselves and that this way of living brings happiness.

We’d love you to be part of this journey.

Warmly,

Jane for team ‘a Girl & her world’
