Aristotle once said, “At his best, man is the noblest of all animals. Separated from law and justice, he is the worst.” In light of the recent deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Gardner, I find it difficult to believe our society could resort to such brutality.
As a member of the Metro Detroit Chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association USA, I am taught to respect the law and those in authority, and to love my fellow human being. -Seems easy enough. Why then is it so hard for some of our citizens and law enforcement to do the same? Maybe Aristotle is right.
