Your Black Life Matters To Me

By Jon Dunnemann

Let's be perfectly clear, when we stand in the public square with our hands up in the air, affirming in speech that black lives matter we must be sure to turnaround and face our black brothers and sisters in our community then courageously appealing to their hearts, their conscience, their collective understanding of our past history of oppression and violence and say most humbly and lovingly to thee that your black life truly matters to me. 

You matter to me and I want and desperately need to also matter to you. Therefore, let's make it our no. 1 priority to do no further harm to one another. 

Then and only then, will our black lives really matter in the way that truly means the most and will make the biggest difference both now and well into the future.
