Benjamin Franklin once said, “When the well’s dry, we know the worth of water.”
In the Western World, we take advantage of how precious water is. We run baths, take hour long showers, use appliances like dishwashers, sprinkler systems on our lawns and even fill pools for our enjoyment. Most of us have the option of drinking tap or bottled water.
It is crazy to think that 785 million people live in this world without access to clean drinking water. Some of those people live here in once of the most powerful countries on the planet. Now this issues in Flint (Flint, Michigan) are a little more complicated than finding a clean source for water, but that doesn't change the fact that there are problem to be fixed.
Evaporation, condensation, precipitation, collection are the most basic steps in the cycle of water. During this challenge, I keep finding myself talking about endings, beginnings and how neither really exists. Even in my being thankful for water, it brings me back to another cycle.
Cycles....food for thought.
