On Saturday I saw a girl in a wheel chair with one missing leg, a beautiful young lady. My heart went out to here. I talked to a gal whose mom survived breast cancer and thyroid cancer. I am a vendor out there in the community, so I meet a lot of people, talk to a lot of people, share information, share stories, and hear a lot of real life stories. People and their survival is amazing. The inner strength that many walk around with is really pretty amazing.
My husband said he was the girl who had that flesh eating bacteria on T.V. recently who was missing limbs. Removing her limbs was the only way to save her life. I had heard it was from some water she had been in. We have to appreciate the fact that we have limbs.
If we do not have clean water in this world we cannot prevent disease. We need wells all across the world and clean water.
Don’t throw your batteries in the garage, they are full of acid. Bring them to a recycling center.
Have the old pipes in this old house been replaced? Are they lead? Are they safe?
I always think about that saying, I thought I had it bad until I saw someone without any shoes walking around. If we have food on our table and shelter we are better off than a lot of people in this world. Many do not know where their next meal will come from. I worry with all the drought we have had across the country and how it will drive grain prices up. Will exports be 3rd world countries be a problem?
Water is our most precious resource. We are lucky to live by Lake Superior but our rivers, streams, and lakes we need to protect. I am thinking of water. Check out this you tube video by a local musician, if you can access it. You may have to sign into your You Tube account first.
