This is not a political post.
I am constantly being bombarded with such toxicity every single day with the recent events that have occurred these past few weeks…Innocent civilians murdered..innocent police officers murdered. It’s in all our media, facebook, newspapers and tv stations like CNN and Fox News.
I just have to get this off my chest. No I don’t want to start any arguments.
All lives matter.
Me stating this doesn’t mean that I don’t think the problems of one group should be silenced. I’m not saying “Hush now, can’t you see we all have problems?” What I’m saying is that every innocent life is worth just as much as the next. Black lives matter. Police lives matter. Gay lives matter. Transgender lives matter.
ALL. LIVES. MATTER.
The problems of one are the problems of all, we are connected. If there is racism, it affects everyone. Politics won’t fix it. Only the people can fix this. In the bigger picture with us united as Americans (because that is who we are) can we take the first steps into changing things for the better.
What we are facing is much bigger than race or stereotypes. It’s even bigger than who the next President is going to be. What we face is something that can change our future..but what choices will we make to give ourselves and our children a favorable future?
Be the best person you can be. All lives matter. Yours, mine and the other strangers in the world.
