in my previous post, i briefly introduced “the water issue” … water is a necessity, a blessing, a right, a luxury, an indispensable and irreplaceable vital nutrient … and yet, i consider myself ineffably fortunate to have daily, liberal access to clean, abundant, potable water on demand — where i want it, when i want it …

how and why is it that approximately 1.1 billion people in the world (more than 16% of the world’s population; United Nations statistics, 2004) live without free access to clean, sufficient water? … equally horrific is the fact that billions more live without adequate sanitation … more…
