The Black Lives Matter movement has never been more important than it is today. I think I can speak for most of us when I say that we have lost far too many and continue to lose Black lives at the hands of the racial and social injustice systems and its officers and commissioners yet when we speak and cry out that “Black Lives Matter”… Here comes someone yelling over us that “All Lives Matter.” Trust me when I say that I understand that all lives matter. Hell, even the lives of dogs, cats, birds, etc. matter but I am not able to live as a dog, cat, bird, or even a human woman of any race other than Black/African American therefore, with every ounce and fiber in me… I will proudly and loudly embrace and declare that My Black Life Matters, My Black sons’ Lives Matter, and all my fellow Black Lives Matter. Regardless to our family history, criminal history, social or economical status or any other form of statistic, WE matter. We individually matter to ourselves, we matter to our family and friends, and most importantly WE matter to our creator God.
It is my personal emotion and belief that drives me to the position of thought that in times like these… WE need each other more than we have ever realized, and WE need unity. If we are ever able to wise up, be humble and unite… I believe that we could do anything as well as become extremely powerful as a community. We are in both a race and fight for OUR Lives… The Black Lives. And despite how dark and dim a day or lifetime here on this Earth can seem, WE can have victory!
May our lessons be plenty and our journey be joyous and beautiful!
God Bless 😘
