Word of the Day -- Sensitize

sen·si·tize
ˈsensəˌtīz/
verb
gerund or present participle: sensitizing
  1. cause (someone or something) to respond to certain stimuli; make sensitive.
    "the introductory section aims to sensitize students to the methodology of the course"
    • make (photographic film) sensitive to light.
      "the kit sensitizes any 35 mm film in hours"
    • make (an organism) abnormally sensitive to a foreign substance.
      "the workers had been immunologically sensitized to the enzyme"


This word is often used to describe the process of focused education. For example, when Rawanda was putting together their constitution, they wanted to have all of the people fully involved... which is why the process took 3.5 years. 

Rawanda's ambasodor to the UN, Senator Tito Rutaremara, said 

"We spent six months sensitizing the population on what a constitution is, what voting means, what democracy means. We created booklets in Kinyarwanda (the local language), and went from village to village across the country. We even simulated Senates so that the population could see how a system would work in practice."

It is likely that sensitizing will be a necessary step with the current fringe elements of the Equality and Feminist movements today, in order for there two be a future tomorrow.

The Bleeding Corpse

The Bleeding Corpse:  Your MC comes down the wooden stairway, that was old when he was born, and into the cellar of the house. He descends into musty smells, feeling layers of dust and dank as he submerges into the thick air. A single naked, low watt light-bulb hangs over the laundry area to the right, On the smooth cement floor inside that lonely pool of light lays the body of Mrs. Katt. Blood is dripping out of her eyes like tears... Your character better rush to the phone and call Emergency help. Now! Go! Because Mrs. Katt is still alive!

Right now we are in the Delta phase , and heading toward a yet to be understood Mu phase .   Yesterday, ~500 people died in the state of Florida. The daily average is 350, a day. Not a week or a month. Every day .  These days most of them are young.
