We assume the hungry will be fed.

We assume the homeless will find shelter.

We assume a smile won’t make a difference.

We assume someone else will handle it.

We assume quiet means they’re OK. No need to ask them how they are.

We assume we have tomorrow.

We assume we have the right to be loved.

We assume we’ve been heard & understood.

We assume the grass is greener.

We assume truth isn’t absolute.

We assume sex trafficking happens on the other side of the world, not in OUR neighborhood.

We assume our leaders are smarter than us and have everything in hand.

We assume it has to be someone else’s turn. We’ve done enough.

We assume we know what we’re talking about.

We assume things will work out…

Is this why we don’t assume responsibility?
