Winning Essay

Justice for all is a right that everyone is born with no matter their background, skin color or religion. Just for all means respect, fairness, and equality for all. Justice is a way of making sure that the majority of society remains safe. Justice revolves around the principle that every action has a consequence.

The textbook definition of justice is: The principle of fairness: the ideal of moral equality. Many believe that there is no justice or that the rules of justice are not applied to everyone. Justice is an idea that has been around since rules have been around. One part of justice is respect for all. One must always have respect for others because one must treat others how they want to be treated. This rule goes hand in hand with fairness and equality for all which is also a main part in justice.

Fairness is also another big part of justice. Justice revolves around the principle that every action has a consequence. Many think that the justice department is unfair. In order for a good court system to work on criminal cases, the courts must be able to be able and willing to judge people effectively. Without appropriate prosecution, justice cannot be achieved. Further, without appropriate and fair prosecution, both the innocent as well as the guilty can suffer. That is why we have to have to make sure no one is judged unfairly no matter their background, skin color or religion. This is why fairness also plays a big role in equality for all.

Equality for all and justice for all go hand in hand with each other. In order for people to be judged the same, people must first be seen the same. Everyone is born with the same rights and everyone dies with the same rights. No one should be treated differently no mater their background, skin color, or religion. Once we achieve equality, we can then have justice.

To conclude, justice for all is a right that everyone is born with no matter their background, skin color, or religion. Justice for all means respect, fairness, and equality for all. Justice is a way of making sure that the majority of society remains, safe. Justice revolves around the principle that every action has a consequence.
