The World Is Hot Like Fire And JA Is No Exception – Video Contains Profanity

As we lament on crime and violence, the unrelenting prevalence of lawlessness, we are reminded that the World is under siege.  Whether it is ISIS, Turkey, USA, and France in the spot light, little seems to be accomplished when it comes unto prevention.  Imagine this small Island where corruption is rife, law enforcement constantly under a microscope, one word rings from every crevice and corner.  JUSTICE, we want it, we demand it, and we are entitled to it.  Will it ever be forthcoming and who exactly is the recipient of this scarcity?

It is scary there is no denying and the rhetoric that we hear from political quarters leaves the citizenry with little hope that any change where it is needed will come to fruition in this century.  Change in the legislature relating to crime I speak of.  When you can be standing on the corner, and see a gun man running through the community armed with a rifle in combat, you know exactly what will take place, what can take place, and what has taken place in the past.

JUSTICE can only be arrived at after an action or before an action depending on the nature.  When the elements or aspects of justice becomes jaded similar to black n white with grey areas, we undoubtedly end up with crisis upon crisis.  Where do we go from here?  Will all our strategies from one administration to the next bring about true reformation?  As we speak the dialogue about social responsibility and duty, we must never lose sight that our choices in doing right or wrong is still one in which our social environment may not always be the dictator.  Our world has changed from way back when.  MONEY has a new definition in terms of access, education, opportunity, and value.  What drive and dictates many is the prospect of overnight success.  If such is to be achieved through illicit means, regardless of the route that society deems right, greed says otherwise.

There was a time when the poor had pride and sought out an education for their own through assistance, sweat and tears.  Sacrifice was spoken of daily and your pride caused you to make the most of it.  Todeh todey the only sacrifice a chat bout a blood sacrifice.  We have absolutely no control over our events, brutal, evil and wicked as they appear.  We have none because we lack the WILL to shake things up in all areas of our governance.  Our hands have been tied and we refuse to loosen them so we remain in bondage to outside influences.
