We reclaim this
holiday weekend for our attention to life and the celebration of the
living, as Echo Valley Hope offers our first event dedicated to water,
a basic human need. We will highlight efforts of friends and
organizations from around the world who are trying to ensure that all
people have clean water. Our hope is to bring people together to learn
about others' efforts, battles, victories and more...
water and actions to preserve it are readily available on the web. Here
is a great source of information about water: http://www.circleofblue.org/waternews/2009/world/infographic-ten-things-you-should-know-about-water/.
We need to listen to
one another. What is needed is a chance to understand and celebrate our
dependence on water - and on each other - and to do all that we can to
preserve clean water for ourselves and for our children.
We will work towards
a change in perspective, taking back the right and the joy for everyone
to have clean water.
Our strength lies in
our hope, in our love and in our determination.
Do you have a song,
a play, a poem, an effort regarding water that you would like to share?
We are still creating this event. You are most welcome to participate.
