Blog Action Day 2010 October 15th
I'm preparing an entry for Blog Action day. Have you heard about it? My kids try so hard to conserve water they rarely flush and have to be sent to the shower. Do we take our access to water for granted? In the US, we absolutely do. This year the Blog Action day theme is water. I bet we'll learn a lot.
This week I learned that there are people in the United States that don't have access to other basic services we take for granted.
A fire rescue team let a man's house burn to the ground because he failed to pay his fire service fee. They had abundant water to available to wet down the perimeter to protect his neighbors from the flames. The neighbors were all paid up.
