ALL lives matter
It is not a cliché. Or a slogan. Or a wish. It is a truth.
Whatever sex, shade of skin, geographic location or country of origin, sexual orientation, religion, age, background, wealth or poverty, tribe, social standing, political position, fame, class or caste.
ALL lives matter.
Not only do all lives matter. But they all matter EQUALLY.
Nobody but nobody, is better or more important than anyone else.
But whoever you are, wherever you are in the world, if other innocent lives matter so little to you that you are prepared to kill, maim, rape, bully, terrorise, harass, suppress, disenfranchise, subjugate, or damage other lives …
Then your life does not matter to me
Not one little bit.

I wrote and posted this two years ago, and repeated it last year. Nothing much has changed. In fact, in all of the most powerful nations, and in many others, to a greater or lesser extent, human life has been devalued further in the last two years.
