NAWWA and Black Lives Matter
NAWWA | Jun 29 2020
In consideration of the horrific death of George Floyd resulting from his arrest by the police and all the other injustices suffered by the Blacks or African Americans, the Founder of NAWWA agrees that Black Lives Matter.
However, in consideration that our society is comprised of 5 other racial categories of people who also suffer injustices in some form or another, the Founder of NAWWA thinks their Lives Matter as well.
In fact, in order to avoid any misunderstanding, confusion or ambiguity with respect to this matter as it pertains to NAWWA, it is NAWWA's position that All Lives Matter and not just the lives of only one race of people. This proclamation includes the lives of all racial categories of people in America, including the Blacks or African Americans. According to the more recent news reports and opinions about racism, to limit a proclamation about lives mattering to a single race of people could be considered as contributing to one of the causes of racism. Thus, it would be hypocritical of NAWWA to do the same.
Furthermore, NAWWA's proclamation of All Lives Matter coincides with the Judeo-Christian values which are one of the underlying principles of NAWWA. Many of these values are included in the writings presented in NAWWA. It should also be pointed out that they are in keeping with the guidelines and ideologies of NAWWA. All of this is evidenced and more fully explained in NAWWA's Mission Statement, Vision Statement, Primary Objectives, and Aims and Purposes.
According to the teachings in the Holy Bible, we are all descendants of Adam and Eve from which all races of people evolved. Therefore, it only stands to reason that All Lives Matter in the eyes of God. Based upon this premise, they should also matter in the eyes of mankind.
The Lord will keep you from all harm -
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
