Many of us grow up with the constant reminder of the phrase, “Life is not fair.” In the world we depend on, which is full of crimes and danger, life cannot be fair. In 2007, six men were brutally murdered in an apartment in Surrey, B.C. Out of the six men, two were bystanders who lost their lives. Chris Mohan, an innocent man who walked by during the drug activity, was killed. Edward Schellenberg faced the same faith as Mohan while working on fireplaces in the building. They were innocent men who lost their lives because of others’ mistakes. How fair is life? These two men had to pay for what others had done wrong. On January 25, 2009, a department store in Germany was robbed; the thieves left with more than ten million Canadian Dollars worth of jewellery and watches. Fortunately, the police found traces of DNA left behind at the crime scene. Hassan and Abbas O., who were twins, were arrested after the matching of DNA with the sample which was found. What no one expected was the similarity of the twins’ DNA. Both brothers walked free because it could not be identified as to whose DNA was recovered at the crime scene. A criminal walks free, but two innocent men lose their lives. Their stories prove that our world is not fair at all; the Earth does not revolve around you. Not everything in life is as fair as a game of “rock, paper, scissors.” Not everything is black and white.
