I was like, how dare she? The unlikely meeting years after Little Bighorn came at a time of heightened tensions at Standing Rock.
Self-healing DNA nanostructures
As one of his first acts as president, Donald Trump ordered the approval of pipeline construction across Lake Oahe , which the tribe says poses a grave threat to its water supply, is destroying sacred sites and is violating treaty rights. Young broke down crying as she spoke of Little Bighorn, where one of her ancestors was a female warrior.

DNA assembled into nanostructures such as tubes and origami-inspired shapes could someday find applications ranging from DNA computers to nanomedicine.
Now, researchers have designed DNA nanostructures that can heal themselves in serum.

Someday, doctors could introduce DNA nanostructures to the human body to diagnose diseases or deliver medications, among other applications. But first, they must find a way to protect or repair the molecules when nucleases attack. Researchers have developed several approaches to stabilize the structures in serum, such as chemically modifying or coating the DNA. So, Yi Li and Rebecca Schulman wanted to develop a self-repair process that could substantially extend the lifetime of DNA nanostructures.
However, when the researchers added extra tiles to serum containing the nanotubes, the building blocks repaired damaged structures, extending their lifetimes to more than 96 hours.
By labeling the original nanotubes and the extra tiles with differently colored fluorescent dyes, the team determined that the additional small DNA pieces repaired the degrading structures both by replacing damaged tiles and by joining to the nanotube ends. The researchers developed a computer model of the process that indicated DNA nanostructures could be maintained for months or longer using the self-healing method.

Note: ACS does not conduct research, but publishes and publicizes peer-reviewed scientific studies. And now it's your turn. Bringing completion to prior generations and setting up what happens for future generations now depends on you. You can take this as a burden and decline to answer the call. This is how the wound keeps reproducing itself. Or you can see this as a gift and an honor, an opportunity to contribute to those you'll never see or know, those who may never know your name. And you can choose to do the work of healing yourself and them. Perhaps you come from a lineage of addiction, from people who found solace and comfort from what seemed unbearable through alcohol or other substances.
You might come from a lineage of anger or violence, from people who kept score and settled them in ways that were destructive to themselves and others.
Maybe your people tried hard to assimilate and fit in, but never quite succeeded, always the "outsider. Your people might have been survivors, having lived through war or other atrocities.

Many fought the battles, inner and outer, with those conflicts having been passed on to you. I grew up in a family with two parents who stayed together for 66 years. I never heard them say a cross word to each other in front of my brothers or me. But as a child, I would sometimes hear them arguing behind the closed doors of their bedroom. It was always a shock to me, for on the surface everything always seemed so tranquil between them. I never knew how unhappy my mother was until towards the end of her life when she began to unload a lifetime of complaints she'd held inside.
People of my parents' generation didn't express their feelings. Their ancestors were stoic and never complained, even though life was hard. Feelings didn't matter. What mattered was getting the job done. At the end of their lives, with having gotten the job of living done, both my parents were faced with a flood of feelings that had never been expressed. For my dad it was sadness, for my mom, anger. My mother was a good and kind woman, but sadly, she died a bitter woman, filled with regrets, never really knowing who she was.
My entire adult life has been a journey of healing this wound, making sure that I leave no stone unturned, so that at the end of the day, I can leave this life with no regrets. I love how George Bernard Shaw puts it: "Life is no 'brief candle' for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
Burning The Bright Torch Our "job" here is to be the light that we already are and reflect that light outward so that others might find their own way in the darkness.
The wounds we carry dim the light. As we do the work of transforming our wounds into gifts that help to bring about healing, we literally begin to shine. We become radiant beings who reflect their true nature, which is luminosity. Or, as Carl Sagan said, "We're made of star stuff. It takes courage to do the work of healing. It's not comfortable, convenient or easy.

It's not "business as usual," or maintaining the status quo. It means the end of denial, pretending and avoiding. It means being radically honest with yourself and those around you.
