Thats really cruel! Is anyone responsible for that reallity! It just makes me sad that they have to do that!
Ben is Upset!
Not many of us realise how lucky we are.
To have access to clean, sanitised water everyday. We might think it’s not much, like it’s just simply apart of our basic life style. But, to others; it’s their life.
Countries all over the world rely on water to save their lives. They don’t get the attention they need. While, politics are arguing about pathetic things, which may be important to them. But what’s more importants are the lives of millions. They are reaching out, calling for help. But we obliviously ignore them.
Why ? Because, we’ve got it easy. Their problems aren’t ours? Why should we have to care for them?
They are people too! They are exactly the same as you who is reading this. They aren’t any different to you. They want to have the same life as you. They want to have showers, drinking water, toilets. They want what WE have.
But that’s never going to happen right? Wrong.. If we, as a global community reach out to people in need, we could help. Help the less fortunate countries, the ones who need the help. The ones who need their lives saved.
We won’t know how lucky we are to have what we’ve got.. Until we finally loose it.
