Words also count: the word chosen, how applied, the context and the intention for usage. Our words express our version of truth. And that is true whether the word is a colloquialism or a central component of a national dialogue. Here are words of significant importance to the current national environment. They are not subject to our personal version for they are fixed in definition. It would certainly be educational and improve the narrative, if people could understand and used them correctly. Refugee: a person who has been forced to leave their country/ home/family in order to escape death, conflict, persecution, economic or natural disasters, events occurring within a short time frame. Such events have occurred throughout human history usually in mass, never pleasant. Contemporary examples are: the Hondurans, Guatemalans, Syrians, Yemeni and abused wives. Migrant: a person or small group who relocates from one place to another, as a result of curiosity, environmental encouragement or to find new resources. Perhaps the tribe is splitting into smaller groups desirous of new leadership or greater emphasis on certain matters, perhaps spiritual. This has occurred among human populations several times over the eons in episodes taking thousands of years to unfold. Examples are: The First People leaving Beringia, crossing the Bering Strait and populating the Americas 20,000 years ago; The two mass movements due to the last ice age, both leaving and returning; or the first tribe looking north from East Africa and wandering what was beyond the horizon 1.9 million years ago. FYI, the American continent’s First People have a common ancestor. Hold that thought. Emigrant: a relatively new word applied to a person or family who by choice are underway to a new place of residence, leaving their own country to settle permanently in another, e.g., Norwegians moving to Canada in early 1800s. Immigrant: the individual who has arrived to live permanently in a country other than place of origin, e.g., did you know that everyone in the US has ties to an immigrant? Immigration is the legal process for reviewing applicants, receiving and moving people into the course of citizenship. The process is also relatively new in human history and is usually controlled by some legal entity on both ends of the journey, e.g., From the early 1600s European companies after obtaining certain legal rights started sending groups of volunteers (employees) to the new land to start settlements for the trade business. The were mostly treated very well by the existing populations, who taught them how to survive and grow new crops in the often very inhospitable environment. We call them Pilgrims, but they were just adventurous business folks. There were no immigration systems and no troops or authorities to stop the flow. The indigenous First People had worked out democracy 600 years before Jefferson and Franklin consulted them on how to do the job of forming a new country, however they soon objected to the methods of the new arrivals. When opportunities were publicized, Europeans began the new migrations by the millions over the next 400 years, peaking in the 1800s. Often passage and fees were paid by Canadian authorities or ship owners, less so for the fledging U.S. The countries, not yet well formed, wanted and needed immigrants to build their respective countries and western expansion. These were the most recent migrants so to speak and your ancestors. The U.S. had the biggest draw and those new to Canada often slipped into the territory south of the border via Wisconsin and onward to other areas. Lincoln’s land grant legislation was a big incentive and Canada followed the competition with similar incentives, e.g., houses, rent subsidies, jobs and resources. The governments considered these matters business investments. An ‘illegal’ is a person who has not followed the legal process when entering a place of non-origin. This relatively new term can be applied to classify a person like a spy, or in general, those present in a country without official authorization. The empires of old had these issues, but mostly groups just declared their intention and tried to live in secular peace. In current times the flow of people labeled illegal is large. They are in reality refugees fleeing horrific conditions, flowing in large numbers across Europe and from Central America into the US. Many colorful words have been used to capture the event, an unfortunate condition for both the refugees and those who must help them. There is an argument for calling them migrants, however for these people, the time frame is short, very short. For those understanding the near future of earth’s environment, this event we are witnessing is only the beginning. All of these words are being grossly misused by politicians, pundits, writers and just about everyone caught up in today’s political and This Holiday Season: Protect Your Family by Recycling Old Batteries (StatePoint) The holiday season can be just the motivation you need to finally declutter your junk drawers, closets, attic and basement in time for friends and family to visit. If these areas of your home contain used rechargeable batteries, you’re in good company. One in five consumers store some or all of their used batteries from the past year, according to a recent Nielsen study conducted on behalf of Call2Recycle. Whether it’s electronics packed away in the attic or boxed toys
