It is often harder to recognize the risk which is posed by an ABSENCE, than it is to recognize the risk which is posed by the PRESENCE of some obvious agent which threatens us. The following suggest some of the many risks due to the ABSENCE of some LITTLE-RECOGNIZED but important "things": 1. Non-obtrusive helpful servants. 2. Subtly-relevant facts and relationships. 3. Unrecognized trans-disciplined understandings. 4. Taken-for-granted utilities; e.g., electricity. 5. Awareness of the histories of conflicted people. 6. Systems-analysis of contentious relationships. 7. An awareness of immutable descriptive laws. 8. The quite work of honest/gentle peacemakers. 9. Reference works containing important facts. 10. News stories about the work of peacemakers. 11. News stories about the works of healthy parents. 12. News stories about healthy conflict-resolution. 13. News stories about wars which were averted. 14. News stories about reconciliation and healing. Take note that the above is an effort to heighten the importance of recognizing what is ABSENT; that which is not evident because it is ABSENT. It is usually not noticed, because it is ABSENT. It is not "in your face". There is often great danger in such an ABSENCE. Be aware of and beware of such ABSENCES. It takes diligent work to succeed at being aware of important things which are ABSENT. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
