Water – the most abundant resource on the planet. We take it for granted. It keeps us healthy, cleans our food, clothes, and our bodies.

In Africa it is said, "Water is life". However, in Africa many people have little access to clean water. They have to walk miles to a community well. Often, the water is tainted and unclean. And unclean water can lead to sickness, infections, blindness and even death. In Africa alone, 345 million people lack access to safe water (http://water.org/water-crisis/water-facts/water/). That represents the entire population of the US. Imagine not being able to provide clean water for your family.

With our northern neighbors currently braving severe snow storms and below-freezing temperatures, Naples residents have been warned that the area is at risk of a “sun-in.”

The local forecast calls for days upon days of bright sun, tropical temperatures, and gentle breezes – in other words, the usual. As opposed to a “snow-in,” where residents are urged to stay indoors and away from the cold, Southwest Florida citizens have been asked to prepare for the “sun-in” by stocking up on hot dogs, barbecue equipment, bathing suits, mojitos, sunscreen, and watermelon.

Experts agree that the best course of action for the sun-in is to quickly and efficiently evacuate to Naples’ famous beaches. In order to get the most out of this dangerously relaxing and
