ALL Lives Matter! A L L !!!


As I embark on this trip, it occurs to me that I am driving through a country that has been hit with a number of tragedies recently that have involved the loss of lives. How can anyone have missed it?

ALL lives lost are a tragedy, no matter who it is - regardless of their race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, and socioeconomic status.

I really want to say that ALL LIVES MATTER! And I mean ALL lives. Again, regardless of race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, and socioeconomic status. We ALL matter; let's stop the madness!

Whether you be a Man or a Woman, Father or Mother, Daughter or Son, Parent or Child, Sister or Brother, Relative or friend, Boss or co-worker, Peace Officer or Civilian, Soldier or Fireman, Student or Teacher, Imam or Rabbi, Priest or Monk, Christian or Muslim, Buddhist or Hindu, Politician or Constituent, and it goes on.

It doesn't matter who or what you are. We are all here together and in it together. Let's make it work! I have friends and acquaintances from all over the world from so many different backgrounds and professions and such. My circle of people I know is probably more impressive than the United Colours of Benetton (Go to the interweb for that). If I can make it work with the people I know, I am confident everyone else can.

I have no affiliation with anyone or any group on this, I am just tired and depressed of seeing news of people dying - let's end this .... together!

We ALL matter, ALL of us.  Whatever your race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, and socioeconomic status.  We ALL matter; let's stop the violence!

There are a lot of sad, tragic things happening these days.  Rather than tearing ourselves apart, we should come together, band together and solve the issues together.  Let's not allow a few bad apples to spoil the whole bunch that is US.  It still rings true that we will either stand united or fall divided.

MATTER

ALL

I posted the above back in 2016 when I journeyed across the US.  It is now the summer of 2020.  Back then, there was racial tension, there were a number of tragic things happening.  I truly believed in the message that ALL lives mattered and still matter today. 

 

But, here we are - again - about four years later and it seems like the clock went backwards.  This time however, it seems more focused on Black people.  It is hard for me to just say ALL Lives Matter as I did then as it seems there has been a recurring tragic impact on the Black / African American community - particularly here in the United States.  

 

That said though, I do have to voice out that BLACK LIVES MATTER!  This term is not to say other lives don't matter, or matter less.  At this moment in time, Black lives are at risk, very high risk and so we MUST pay focused attention to this.  For us all to matter, we must ALL matter equally and that equality has not yet been achieved.  

BLACK LIVES MATTER!
