Water deserves reverence and honor. It deserves the dignity and station afforded to physicians and attorneys. It deserves the attitudes and beliefs passed down through the generations in families and through the culture. Water is a living part of each and every creature, humans as well as flora/fauna. Water moves continually from the outside to the inside through the biology and life cycles. We're created from water and we're changing our biology because we're changing our environments on every level imaginable. Let's stop doing that and listen to the young ones and the wise ones. Let them tell us of this mysterious substance we call water and how to relate with it. On a more prescient note, individuals could rethink and reengineer how they can clean their clothes and dishes and find environment friendly ways of handling their own "water" and "earth" instead of "flushing it magically away" with gallons of finite resources.
