lot magnificent Monday


Hi and welcome again to Magnificent Monday  hosted by Jim McIntosh and our theme  this week is ''Water".
Waves, rivers, watersports, waterspouts, reflections on water, boats on water, boats underwater, bodyboards, surfboards, seashores, and more


There are some basic needs to be able to live, air, water, food. Without air you will live 3-5 minutes, without water about 10 days, you can go about a month without food. Any one of these with out’s is fatal. To deprive anyone of these is murder. In a natural disaster food and water are the first supplies needed to save lives. People in prison are not deprived of these lives essentials. To deprive people of water is manslaughter, genocide, murder. We have the power to stop this; you have the power right in front of you. Face book, has help to over throw a government, and change the lives of many. Is there anyone of you that would refuse to give a child or a dying man a drink of water? This problem is not unique to any country is a worldwide problem. We spent billions for defense of countries and trillions on health care. We need to stop the greedy bastards that put their wallet ahead of human life.

 Doctors found year ago that washing their hands does stop the spread of infection. Every person has the right to two and one half gallons of free clean water per day. Yes it does cost to deliver water to many, but it is a cost that should be borne by our governments. No one should have to pay for the right to live. We have the technology to make this happen. We need to give our governments the will to make it happen. There is plenty of water for everyone; we just have to find the way to make it available to all. In the name of the people who are dying at this moment for the lack of free clean safe water I ask you to join this crusade to give a free two and one half gallons of water per person per day. If you have had your water turned off you know what I am saying is true. Every water-suppler should determent the amount of water that is needed per household and deliver it freely, and not turn it off because the household does not have the ability to pay. Farmers should be allotted enough water to raise the food we all need and they should pay a small fee to do so. Industry should pay the most for water and be the last to get water.

Thank you for coming by and please tell your governments that all should have water to live. god bless

It's often taken for granted in our developed countries. just turn on a tap and drink a glass of cool, clean water. But in many countries the nearest source of water from a muddy pool may be 10-20 kilometres or more away. A woman's role in life, and her children's is to carry water just to survive.

Nice pictures...water is one of the basic amenities which is deprived to many. The government knows, but they are indifferent.

A nice post.Water has become a highly precious resource,There are some places where a barrel of water costs more than a barrel of oil. More than one-half of the world's major rivers are being seriously depleted and polluted.

Roy I love the photos. Water represents life. No water, no life.
Each time I turn on the tap I think of how fortunate I am. No one should be denied this basic staple to life.

How much of the goodness and abundance of the earth we take for granted...Thanks for the reminder, Roy.

Hi Roy, I enjoyed reading your post. I agree that certain amounts of water should be available at no cost to everyone. The phone companies offer "lifeline" phone usage, and other utilities have similar programs, but I've never seen the water company offer a program to ensure that low-income families always have water. I take advantage of the level-pay plans that my utility companies offer, but my water company offers no such thing. God supplied water when he created this earth and greed of man took it away.

Roy Durham said...

@ Jody K. your are right and the thing that builds a fire in me is that these company that supply water will turn it off a the drop of a hat with large deposit to restore the flow of water.

Lily Brenner said...

I never thought I'd pay for bottled water, but I have. I am truly blessed to have all the water I need. I do my best not to waste it.

Debra said...

How about charitable organizations helping provide water to those in short supply? They are so much faster and more efficient that the government. If we waited on the government, they’d all die ;-(

Roy Durham said...

@ Debra there a few charitable organizations that help but their help is to little and too late. the red cross will pay 100 dollars of a bill once a year. i have work on a few water projects and all the funding came from governmental sources the pubic here in the us. and privet company manage the resource in many areas. the cost of the drinking water was paid for by taxes. yet a person in your town on limited income will be shut off and denied water for the lack of the ability to pay

I am reminded that Jesus said we are blessed if we offer any of the little ones a cup of cold water.
Many mission trips I have heard of have gone places with the plan to dig wells and provide fresh water for the people. So many governments in third world countries are too corrupt and uncaring to save those less fortunate.
We are blessed to live in a country where most have access to fresh, clean water. To help those who don't, we need to look in and clean up our own back yards if the problem is there.
And, we need to always remember to drink from the Living Water . . .
Blessings, Roy!

I love water. The sound of it, just to me has a very healing and peaceful effect, and its life giving qualities make it both reviving and essential.
Loved the pics!

In our type of countries Roy we take water so much for granted. Drinking, washing, cleaning, even watering our gardens and washing our cars. In my travels i have been to places where water is desperately needed and the lucky ones can make a long trek to a well and then have a long trek back, others have it even worse. Incredible to think in this day and age how bad this is in so many places
