Day Twenty-Seven

"Walking the length of the State of Kansas-- 400 miles in all-- gives a walker who is trying to promote justice plenty of time and space to think.

"Thinking about justice is not a new avocation for me. Long ago, I thought justice would be better served if our nation issued an apology to Native Americans and African Americans. Today, genocide and slavery are two forms of injustice, most humans would readily label abhorrent, cruel, even evil, and would find far beyond any logical justification.

"But what are we 'logically' defending when we are destroying the fragile ecosystem future humans will need to survive? Isn’t that a form of genocide? And what are we doing when we are burdening our children and future humans with a debt they will work a lifetime to repay. Isn’t that a form of slavery? Pursuing justice is part of the evolution of human intelligence.

"We have eliminated some forms of genocide and slavery. We have yet to eliminate all forms of genocide and slavery. Besides Native Americans and African Americans, we also owe an apology to Future Americans/Humans."
