Water


If your reading this then I can imagine that you probably have a computer. I am also going to assume that you have a home, food, clothing, and clean, fresh, water. Water is an amazing thing. It flows cleanly out of the faucet in your kitchen and bathroom. When you flush your toilet gallons of water pour in and out of it. Showering takes even more than that. Bathing is a completely different story. The average African uses 2.5 gallons of water a day. The average Canadian…86. We dont realize that we are consuming it. You use the water and you pay the bill. However, clean water isnt availible everywhere. You do know why they say dont drink the water in Mexico right? Dirty water is killing people everywhere.  1 in 4 deaths of children under 5 years old is related to dirty water and only 2/3 of our planet has access to filtration systems. I think its hard for the average American to grasp the idea of dirty water. If you want to help stop this crisis go out to http://www.charitywater.org. This is a major issue. You can help.Now trust me, I am so not saying go and live in a third world country and drink the water. But as I sit and write this with a bottle of clean cold water beside me, I am saying we can make a difference and help some people who need the same water we do.
