March 22 is World Water Day

Today Is World Water Day – an annual day we are invited to focus our attention on sustaining the world’s freshwater resources. This year’s theme is “Leaving No One Behind.” We who have available the water we need, could seek to learn more about the reasons why people, even in our own privileged country may be left behind without safe water. As we pour today, a glass of clean, clear water and drink, we can be appreciative. As we wash our hands today, and feel the cleansing liquid on our skin, we can be grateful. We can look at the food at our table today and notice which foods needed water to cook them. Even if we experience tears today, we can allow them to slide down, maybe even to our chin, and be glad for water.

That was a shock, yet gradually the realization came... here lies the periphery for me.
