This I Believe…

I believe that everyone in life should get a second chance. It’s true. I believe that everyone in this world has some good in them and that if they have done a wrong thing then people should not solely judge them on that one mistake in their lives. For instance I’m sure you’ve heard the term, “once a cheater, always a cheater”? Well I believe that that statement is not always true. People can change in life and I do truly believe that. If a person has cheated in life before it does not mean that they are from that point on known as a cheater. It just means they made a mistake, and in this world everyone makes mistakes and nobody is perfect, so really in fact everyone should deserve a second chance. Now take for instance a murderer. You know they’ve killed someone, they know it too. For whatever reason it was they did it. Now I’m not saying there is anything that can truly justify the killing of another human being but I’m also not saying that a person who has killed another isn’t only just a murderer. I’m sure this person has a family, friends, and people in their lives. I’m sure this person has loved before. I do believe this person should go to jail, possibly even killed himself but that there still is good in that person. Every person should be given a second chance to redeem themselves, if not in this life then the next. In conclusion I believe that every person in this world should be given a second chance.
