"You really can change the world if you care enough."
Most people are raised to know that you should help those who need help, and accept help when offered help. However, in the year of 2017, we see hashtags that say #AllLivesMatter, yet we see on the news "Bombs in Syria", "Attacks on Middle Eastern Countries" and even "Syrian Children Left Parentless". The #AllLivesMatter campaign is complete and utter bollocks. Unless you're a rich American and you're white- don't expect help.
President Donald J. Trump recently signed an executive order that prohibits refugees/citizens from seven countries that have a population of Muslim majority, from being able to seek help by coming into the United States to get away from the attacks and destructions on their homelands. Places where many, and most have lost the lives of their family, friends, other loved ones and even their own lives. Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Sudan. These seven countries for the next 90 days have no where to seek shelter and help for themselves and their children. However, if you are a rich, white American, you can be sure that this will never happen to you, and doesn't concern your, right?
Trump's action is a disgusting and an unacceptable act in the name of a country that is supposed to represent the promise of freedom of religion. This shows just how apathetic the United States has become toward the suffering of other men, women, and children.
The #AllLivesMatter campaign has been a problem since its beginning, but the ironic silence it has adapted in the wake of senseless bloodshed and depravity speaks volumes more than its ignorant rhetoric ever could. No, you do not believe that all lives matter. You hide behind this ridiculous statement to hide yourself from accepting accountability for your apathy, justifying your own racially-charged inaction and it reflects badly on the reality of the refugee crisis. Your "All Lives Matter" crap benefits people who look and act like you, who speak in your native tongue, who praise your same God. Your "All Lives Matter" sentence reaches only toward disrupting and violating the rights of those unlike you, those who lead lives that cause you to experience discomfort due to their foreignness.
You couldn't care less about all the lives you are costing and the lives you are impacting with this ban. You see these refugees as people with non-white skin who worship a different God than you. You only show hatred, bigotry, intolerance, and fear. You talk about how you want a country in the name of YOUR Christian God. A God who states to help those you hate. You're hypocritical and spineless.
You have made sacrifices out of these innocent lives, and your hands are permanently stained with the blood from premature deaths. You forced these people to die in vain for your own political agenda.
All lives don't matter, unless it's yours.
