Killer House Plant?

Saya dapat email dari seorang teman yang mengatakan bahwa tanaman ini beracun. Tanaman ini bisa ditemukan di mana saja, bisa di rumah, di kantor, di sekolah, di jalan, dan di sekitar kita. Kalau tidak salah di Indonesia namanya “beras tumpah”.

Begini isinya:

“Please read below. The message is true. I almost lost my daughter who put a piece of the leaf of this plant in her mouth and her tongue swelled to the point of suffocation. This is one plant but there are others with the same characteristics of coloring. Those are also poisonous and we should get rid of them. Please watch out for our children. As we all leave our children home in the hands of the helpers, we should give them a safe environment where they
can play. This plant that we have in our homes and offices is extremely dangerous! This plant is common in   Rwanda & Uganda in plant nurseries , many offices and homes. It is a deadly poison, mainly for the children. It can kill a kid in less than a minute and an adult in 15 minutes. It should be uprooted from gardens and taken out of offices. If touched, one should never touch ones eyes. Iit can cause partial or permanent blindness. Please alert your buddies.”

Aku hampir kehilangan anak perempuanku, ketika ia bermain dengan menaruh daun tumbuhan ini di dalam mulutnya, lidahnya menjadi bengkak dan ia menjadi sesak nafas. Tanaman ini hanya sejenis, namun ada tanaman lain yang hampir mirip karakteristik warnanya. Tanaman ini beracun dan kita harus menjauhkannya dari lingkungan kita. Berhati-hatilah terhadap anak-anak kita, walaupun kita sering meninggalkan mereka di rumah dengan pengasuhnya, kita tetap harus memberi mereka lingkungan bermain yang aman.
Killer House PlantTanaman ini seringkali kita taruh di rumah atau di kantor, berhati-hatilah karena ia beracun! Tanaman ini sangat umum di negara Rwanda & Uganda . Tanaman ini sangat beracun, terutama bagi anak-anak. Racunnya dapat membunuh anak-anak hanya dalam waktu kurang semenit dan membunuh orang dewasa dalam waktu 15 menit. Jangan ditanam di kebun, apalagi ditaruh di kantor atau rumah. Jika tangan Anda menyentuhnya, jangan sekali-kali Anda usap mata Anda sesudahnya, karena racun tersebut dapat menyebabkan kebutaan. Tolong peringatkan orang-orang sekitar Anda.

I think newsworthy is something worth being in the public, something that people need to know, something that can be shared in public.

What is defeat?

Defeat is something more than just losing a chance to win.

On the other hand, defeat is nothing but education. It is the first step to something better. Don’t let yourself be defeated by yourself. Don’t let yourself be defeated by anything or anyone. Keep moving forward though it seems to be tougher than you think. And in the end, you’ll probably say you can’t be defeated.
