World Water Day

Though March is filled with many a reason to celebrate (equinox, St. Patrick, Pi, Ides...), today I'd like you to take a few minutes to think about and celebrate water...H2O... agua...wasser... 水... вода... l'eau.

Today is World Water Day, a United Nations-designated annual celebration of water. This year's theme is water and culture, which "draws attention to the fact that there are as many
ways of viewing, using, and celebrating water as there are cultural traditions around the
world."

Water is a basic human need (We can go weeks without food but only days without water.), yet 1.1 billion people lack suffi cient access to safe drinking water.

Water is a force of destruction (witness Hurricane Katrina), but floods brought rich, fertile soils to some of the world's most productive agricultural areas.

Water is used in our baptism, and to carry away our dead.

Water splashed on our face in the morning invigorates us to face our days, and the sound of rain, waves, or a gurgling stream is the most pleasant way to be lulled to sleep cozy in our tents at camp.

So take a moment today to raise a glass and to celebrate water.

Here's to water! (raises glass of wine...I mean water)

It is heartbreaking how much of our water is polluted. Water may be the limiting factor for the human population.
