"If we say we love people, at the very least
we will see they are treated with justice."
That's not exactly how the quote goes, but it is close enough. Besides, I don't know who said that, and I can't check it because I don't know the origin.
But it is true.
This goes beyond laws, which can be, and sometimes are discriminatory.
What I'm referring to is called "Fundamental Justice"* — a vital and vigorous concept of fairness, which underlies the administration of law and the way that is operated. While fairness may vary a bit in understanding from time to time, I think all people have a rough idea of what is fair: don't cheat or steal, don't kill, treat others with respect; things like that.
It is this fairness which needs to be at the basis of our laws and basic relationships with one another.

J is also for jealous, jerk, junebug, junket, and jail (where you might end up if you're being a jerk).
(And, yes, I know that J comes before K, but, well, that just didn't work, this time. Besides, consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative — consistency being a term which cannot be assigned to this Bear.)
Blessings and Bear hugs, folks.
