Unwavering commitment to justice

July 19, 2013


Unwavering commitment. Nelson Mandela. Wavering justice. Trayvon Martin.

In a week of deeply disturbing news, it is good to remember what Mandela has taught us about sustaining the work of justice, in spite of the difficulty, the pain, the despondency that can arise. If, as news reports indicate, his health has rebounded, it is yet another reminder that even as a light for justice seems about to be extinguished, it can catch hold of the fire again and continue to show us a way.

Today the Department of Justice placed a hold on the Trayvon Martin evidence as part of its open investigation to decide whether criminal civil rights charges should be filed by federal prosecutors. May there be an unwavering commitment to see justice done.
