DNA: Do Not Assume …

Tuvalu

When I say DNA people think of the stuff that makes us who we are, and in a way that is partially what this about. When I think of it, I also think ‘Do Not Assume’. The reason is that assumption is one of the biggest mistakes that any person can make. There are so many variables in any thing you do that to assume you know them all is a big problem.

I will give you some examples of what I mean – If you hear that a store was robbed – what are the first things that go through your mind – African American – drugs – booze – or gangs.  I am not saying that it is all those aspects are true or false, it is how most of us are trained to think.  Look at what has happened in the past: A mother killed her kids and when she went to the police what did she say ‘A black guy stole her car and kids’. Her name was Susan Smith and it happened in South Carolina. The year was 1994 and the entire country was thinking it was true.

We now have President Obama and there are people who try to say he isn’t an American and even though he has provided his birth certificate showing he was born in Hawaii, they still say that it isn’t true. Why what is the reason for it? He has tried to make things better for this country. He has gone against the status of the normal. He doesn’t belong to one of the rich families, he has worked to make things better.

Another assumption is that to live in America you have to speak English … The fact is that America has no official language. When this country was founded it was for all people.

Another example that is very true today: people for the longest time have said that we can’t hurt this planet, it is too big. They have said that Volcanoes put out more greenhouse gasses than we do, they have said that cow farts do the same thing, they look at everything but the one thing that they should – the humans that don’t think of what they do.

I am not saying that everyone is to fault, that would be an assumption. The question then becomes when do we say no to the oil companies that want to start trying to take oil out of the Artic. When do we say the one person per car has to become 3 per car? When do we say that nature is more important than someone’s bottom line?

We are already suffering the effects of the planet heating up. Not to many people know of the country of Tuvalu. They are a small island nation and guess what their highest point from the water is 16 feet. They are in the middle of the Pacific and they suffer from the storms that are getting worse.

Take time to look at what you are doing and how you can help others, we live on this world together and need to find ways to help those that need it without the stereo types added.

People don’t want to be on the system, getting aid or being labelled as not part of the real world.  We are all part of the real world and we need to work together.
