Whose Lives Matter?
As the chant, “Black Lives Matter” holds center stage across our nation, there is this growing counter call, “All Lives Matter”. This response derives from those who want to retain their own sense of value and not be excluded from the equation. Does one life hold more value over another life . . . Whose lives matter? This is a question which comes up more often than we may think. We have come to that place where we question the value of a life. Does my life matter more than yours? Does the life of an unborn child matter more than the life of the mother? Does the life of a teenaged Leukemia patient matter more than the life of a cancer-stricken senior? Do Black Lives matter more than All Lives?
