Many years ago, I heard the story of rich man who got away with killing each of the several wives he married.

He reversed his car over his first wife, threw the second wife out of a window, strangled the third wife and drowned the fourth wife. None of the women received justice for the Rich man’s actions.

Despite the Rich man’s history of murder, he carried on with marrying and killing women with impunity. No one questioned or queried his actions, because of his wealthy status and high standing in society. It was over-looked. In some cases, the women who objected to being married to this fellow, were forced into it by friends and society, because of the rich man’s riches.

Greed is defined as a selfish and intense desire for something. When greed is allowed to overtake principles, it rips lives apart. Societies, homes, communities and even nations are destroyed, when eyes are closed and voices kept silent and mute against injustice.

Injustice must be challenged, regardless of the status of the perpetrator. Those who continue to carry out actions of injustice must be STOPPED, and not encouraged. It is the covetous heart; the gutted soul, that will keep silent in the face of injustice.
