So why does this affect you?
Injustice can happen to any person. We have seen injustice in big events, such as the segregation of Blacks and Whites. We have learned from the past to be more equal to all and not have injustice towards others. So now we no longer have public segregation by color. Even though some of the most common injustice events occur in the past this does not mean it is not happening today. There does not have to be a big event, it can be in the small events. In an article by Daniel Little he states: "If a supervisor favors one worker over another — offers better work schedules or higher merit evaluations — out of personal preference or animosity, we have a basic reaction of unfairness." We can experience injustice in work, school, and even in our homes. It is not as drastic as some other world events but it still is injustice. There are some world injustice examples going on today, too. For example, one injustice is the issue of women in Middle Eastern countries, many of whom do not have the same rights as men. These women are often treated as property and have no rights whatsoever. Here on our home-soil there is still injustice towards our veterans. Those who have served to protect our country and our freedom often end up homeless. Many of our veterans sacrifice not only their time but their mental, physical, and/or relational health. When they return home from serving they often become homeless because of traumas from the past. They cannot forget the horrors of war so they often cannot step back into life as if it never happened. These veterans give so much service, yet little is given in return. Everyday we can help others prevent injustice and teach them about injustice that happens today.
