All People Lives Matter is a richly detailed vignette, that rubs away at the luster of social activism and explores how life can call back those who are furthest adrift.The female narrator on the cusp of young adulthood is Holly, a biology student at the university, and her parents are successful executives. It only seems logical, at first that she should volunteer at an organization that promises hope and social change, contributing her time to an altruistic venture. But her idealism is about to change, and is portended by others who pinpoint her future successes and failures in a nut shell: Youre young, a rabid idealist, impressionable, stupid and going to change the world with your over-powering hope and youthful enthusiasm.The movement is better off with your naiveté, its a fifth wheel to a truck.Youll jump in with both feet and boldly change the world. Pity you!The process of a young idealists disillusionment with her world is a painful one, ... convincingly and creatively explored.
