It seemed right posting this for October's focus.
We need to raise awareness about triumphs as much as causes to rally action for, because there are victories. We're not caught in a cycle of unliftable oppression.

Our actions make change.

I agree with you that the right to water is something very basic. It saddens me to see reports of villages in Africa (and elsewhere) where *CLEAN* water is simply not readily available.

I appreciate learning about the actions of the United Nations.

You continue to inspire me with the consistency of your support for the Am I Not Human? meme. I will join you this month as well!
