    No. It's about life in general.

    Re: life and lives

    English language is really tricky. I thought it would be "lives" because I focused on its previous word "all". Then how the plural form (lives) would be used in a sentence. Let me try to make a sentence; "Lives of all victims of the storm are at risk." is it okay?
