“Life and water are inseparable. Three quarters of the earth’s surface is covered by water, just as three quarters of your body is made up of water. Even in the driest desert where rain may come just once every few years, the cycles of life are based on waiting for the arrival of water. Our bodies are not so patient.
Every cell in your body needs water to survive, and that means that drinking plenty of clean, fresh water can make you stronger healthier and smarter. Water carries oxygen and fuel to your cells, lubricates your joints, regulates your body temperature, and plays a key roll in just about every function of your body.

― Willie Nelson

And look around you and see what needs to be changed.”

I’m not saying things are perfect, but I am saying they’re better than when I was coming up.
