I care about water. I care a great deal. So do we all - or should.
Because, along with oxygen and food, water is one of life's basic needs. It's essential. We can't do without it. When its supply is compromised by restricted access, diminished volume, poison, some combination of these or in some other manner, we're in serious trouble.
Think about how much we take for granted - what we may seldom think about - how we use water and why we need it:
We drink it.
We prepare our food and beverages with it.
We wash ourselves with it.
We bathe and swim in it.
We wash our dishes, glassware and utensils with it.
We wash our underwear, socks and some of our clothing with it.
We wash our motor vehicles with it.
We sprinkle (and sometimes saturate) our lawns and gardens with it.
We wash our pets with it.
We flush our toilets with it.
I support Food & Water Watch for its work and accomplishments for preventing our water from being poisoned by corporations which don't care. I also support Food & Water Watch because of Wenonah Hauter's work on factory farming. In addition, Wenonah has achieved a great deal on banning fracking and on water protection.
I'm grateful for Wenonah's leadership. She not only has determination, she has a fierce passion. Food & Water Watch supporters have a similar passion. It's an excellent organization.
La lucha sigue adelante. (The struggle continues).
