This morning on Twitter, I came across a link to a charity:water video from YouTube that I thought was worth sharing here. It features actress Jennifer Connelly, is only 67 seconds long, and asks a simple question.
I’m grateful for reminders like these, and for people like my friend, Dave Reierson, of Hope2Others International, who just returned from a clean-water-related trip to The Gambia in West Africa. Dave “routinely” travels to Africa. This time he helped fix freshwater wells and train locals to complete needed repairs for themselves. I wrote a profile about Dave a few years back, and especially like the headline that goes along with that story: “MacGyver H20.” (If you’re under 30 and don’t get that reference, just google “MacGyver.”)
