Reflections of commitment

February 24, 2016 - 1:28pm
Water - such a basic necessity. Growing up in Michigan, I never really gave it a passing thought. If I was thirsty, I simply walked over to the faucet and filled a glass. I might have complained about the taste of well water when I was camping, but drinkable water was always a given. It was easily the one thing I missed the most when I was traveling in other countries where the water wasn't safe to drink. What I had always taken for granted became a luxury I missed. I grew weary of brushing my teeth with bottled water and making sure to keep my mouth closed in the shower. After eight weeks on the road, I longed for a simple glass of tap water. Though I hadn't expected to miss it quite so much, I knew what to expect when visiting rural locations around the globe. I knew that developing countries counted clean water as a goal, not a reality. In fact, one of the projects we profiled was about a Spartan partnership that helped a community in Tanzania with access to water. Like I said, I expected a lack of clean water in places like Tanzania. But I never expected a community in my own state would face a devastating water crisis that will affect the health of its citizens for years to come. By now, the entire nation is aware of the situation in Flint. It's a tragic situation. While there have been many debates about how it happened, the most important thing to consider is what to do now. How can we help the people of Flint going forward?
