 "We cannot say who has come, perhaps we shall never know, but many signs indicate that the future enters into us in this way in order to transform itself in us long before it happens. And this is why it is so important to be lonely and attentive when one is sad: because the apparently uneventful and stark moment at which our future sets foot in us is so much closer to life than that other noisy and fortuitous point of time at which it happens to us as if from outside.'- Rilke:

You. If you're a drug dealer, a heroin addict, a thief, a woman on the streets, someone who commits crimes and has been in prison or is there at the moment.
You. If you are depressed or hurt. If you feel like you're losing your mind. If this society and world has said you belong in a mental institution. If you're homeless and abandoned.
Your life matters.
You matter, because All Lives Matter.
Whether you agree with me or don't agree with me
All lives matter
Regardless if you believe the way I do or you do not
Everyone is important. All lives matter.
Those have experienced abuse and those that have never known the pain and torment of being abused
please know, that All Lives Matter.
Those who have experienced injustice and are angry,
You lash out, yell and scream, cry and demand justice take place,
Those who are behind that justice, represent the law of the land and still corrupt it,
All lives matter, even yours.

 ...sorrow | When I draw a character, very often as I'm doing a face, my face mirrors the expression. Matthew Ashford:

Why have I chosen to write about this popular thought at the moment? It's the conversation at work, on the train, on line at the coffee shop and even in homes across America. #AllLivesMatter
Because this is not about just one race, ethnic group or nationality. This is about the human race. All of God's creation (even if you consider yourself to not acknowledge the God I believe in-it's ok) because He still yells out that your life is precious, valuable, and important.

Humanity, in their pain and anger take what happens and allow the pain of that injustice to fester in their hearts like a rotting wound. Instead of running to God and placing this situation in God's hands, instead of seeking Godly wisdom on how to handle this, we turn to the world and how the world confronts these delicate issues and instead of following after the Lord's heart, we follow and imitate those that call for justice in this world with bitterness in their heart and hatred guiding each step.

So, this is my two cents, if it matters to anyone. 
#AllLivesMatter Period.
If you look like me or not, if we speak different tongues or the same, if we sit down to pray together or if I can't worship with you because we've chosen different paths when it comes to the heart, you and I, we all matter~even if someone's opinion of our worth is dirt.
You and I, my children, my husband, my parents, my family, and those that in one way or another are part of my life~ You all matter tremendously. You are fearfully and wonderfully made! For God so loved the world (everyone in this world) that He sent His only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. You may not believe this but for those of us who embrace it, it doesn't matter, the truth remains~ All Lives Matter~ not just one group or one kind.

God bless you. Comments welcomed. Peaceful comments welcomed.
