With my new position here at La Prensa Texas, I get to hear about the history of the mover and shakers of our city. Then, there are days like today. I heard a story about someone who made some mistakes in their teenage years. He has now made an extraordinary difference in our city. Unfortunately, the emphasis was not on his accomplishments but on what a bad person he was and all the bad things he did and how dumb for voters to have put him in office because if they only knew what he did in his past. It reminded me of this story; a fisherman returns to the dock, his bucket filled nearly to the brim with crabs. He puts the bucket down momentarily and another fisherman warns him to put a lid on it, lest some of the crabs escape. “Oh, don’t worry,” the fisherman replies. “They’re Mexican crabs. As soon as one starts to climb up, the others will pull him back down.” I really like the person that I was talking to, I am not sure why she found it necessary to tell me about this person past; I believe in building our people up so I will not be repeating that information nor am I interested in finding out if there is any truth to it. Are you a crab and don’t realize it or do you know a crab? How do we put a stop to this? Let’s talk about it…
