Did you know that you are drinking the same water that your ancestors drank from the beginning of time? Yes! You heard me right. The water that exists on this planet is the same water that existed from day one. There is not one drop more and there is not one drop less. So, the next time you drink a glass of water just imagine who may have drank this water before you, maybe Elvis or George Washington, and then think about how many people will drink this water after you.
I know what a lot of you are thinking. Why is there so much talk about conserving water, droughts, etc. since the amount of water on this planet has not changed since day one. Well, not only has the population of living beings that requires water to sustain life has grown tremendously so has the amount of water that each person consumes/uses daily. For example, in the early 1900’s on the average a person consumed/used approximately 5 gallons a day and now a person consumes/uses approximately 65 gallons a day.
The quality of source waters (rivers, springs, wells, etc) is being destroyed. So now think, the amount of water on this planet is the same the quality of that water has been drastically reduced over the past 100 years. now, it goes with saying that we cannot make water sources, so we need to take care of the ones that have.
They are a precious commodity that was given to us in the beginning and we need to protect them till the end.
