Welcome to Monday! So, this is not your story challenge today, though feel free to work it in somehow. Something that I’ve been thinking a lot about lately is the question: what is justice? What do we mean when we use this word? For Plato, justice was one of the virtues, and he saw it as a right ordering of the soul. A person is just when his rational soul (the sources of wisdom) leads, his spirited soul (the source of courage) defends, and his appetitive soul (the source of temperance) provides controlled labor. In the Christian scriptures justice often seems to reflect the Old Testament Law. The people were just when they obeyed the law by caring for the land, caring for one another, providing for the needy, defending the weak, punishing the guilty, and worshipping God. Justice can also refer to right action defined by some non-legal standard. It’s a complicated topic. Anyway, you’re here for a story challenge. So, in case you haven’t done this challenge before, I’m going to post a picture. Your job is to write a story about what is happening in said picture. Feel free to flesh it out some, to add things to the picture (you’ll probably have to with this one), but make sure that your story is actually about the picture that I post. For example, if I post a picture of a dart competition in a bar, don’t write a story about slavers selling mermaids. If I post a picture of a sorcerer casting a spell at the top of his tower, don’t write a story about a fist-fighter competing in the ring. So, no that you’ve got a good concept of what your doing, here’s your picture. Remember, if your going to post a story here, keep it under 500 words. If you want to post a longer story on your own blog, feel free to post a link to it here.
