Today is Blog Action Day. The one day on the web where bloggers across more than 130 countries all write about the same issue. This year Blog Action Day is focused on the issue of WATER.
There are so many ideas about how we should be handling our use or rather misuse of the earth's best resource...water. So many trains of thought, so many positive outlooks and just as many negative about how humans are both contaminating in some areas while leading the charge to clean up other areas. Can't we just make up our mind to all agree how to handle the situation or are some areas of the world just willing to work harder than others.
