What is Truly Unjust?

So here’s something we should all consider: the Gaza strip borders Israel and Egypt, yet it is not recognized as a part of either country. There have been and continue to be wars over the ownership of this land. It is presently being controlled — dare I say ruled — by Hamas, a group that has been described as “a murderous terror organization.” Israel, an ally of the United States, has decided to cut off power to the Gaza Strip as a form of “economic warfare.”

Pause here to think about everything we use electricity for. There will be no electricity in homes, schools, hospitals and public places. The Gaza strip has 1.5 million residents that include innocent civilians — men, women and children; sick, healthy and dying. They all need electricity to purify their water, incubate their babies and run their dialysis machines, among other things. What is truly unjust? Yes, we can take a stance even in such a long-standing problem. Find out more about the war, make petitions, talk about it, raise awareness — but most importantly, PRAY!
