We said “black lives matter.” Never said only “black lives matter.” We know “all lives matter.” We said “black lives matter” first only because black lives are in immediate danger.
We must not only state our personal opinion against racial injustice — injustice of any kind — we must also stand up, speak out and actively protest against injustice.
Reminds me of Luke 15:4 the Parable of the Lost Sheep: “What man of you having a hundred sheep, and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the desert, and go after that which is lost, until he finds it?...”
As a mother of five children, I am aware of the one child who at the moment is hurting. I must help that child now.
At the moment “Black Lives Matters” is an immediate hurt. Saying “all lives matter” in reply is an attempt to neuter the movement to fight racial inequality.
My personal congratulations to the supporters of the Creston Human Rights Coalition. I am so very proud of my hometown.
