Do you take having water in your life for granted? Most people in this country are fortunate to have running water available to them for drinking, showering, washing, and all that great stuff.

11 US states and many countries all over the world are experiencing severe drought conditions, while too many of us do little to conserve this precious necessity.

Since human beings are around 70% water and need frequent replenishing, this should concern each and every one of us living on this planet. Fresh water is vital to most everything we do, but it is surprising to realize that most are not aware that water supplies have limits. Every gallon of water used now may ultimately result in one less gallon of water available for future use.

So instead of continuing to use water carelessly, perhaps we can all make an effort to reduce water use from now on before it's too late.

The Global Water Crisis ⎢How Much Water Do We Really Use Everyday? ⎢Take...:

Cover my earth mother four times with many flowers.
Let the heavens be covered with the banked-up clouds.
Let the earth be covered with fog; cover the earth with rains.
Great waters, rains, cover the earth. Lighting cover the earth.
Let thunder be heard over the earth; let thunder be heard;
Let thunder be heard over the six regions of the earth.
-- Zuni Prayer for Rain
