Perspective…

As winter weather holds us in its grip, and we bemoan the incessant rain….a couple of observations.

  • 783 million people in the world do not have access to safe water. This is roughly one in eight of the world’s population.
  • 2.5 billion people in the world do not have access to adequate sanitation, this is 39% of the world’s population.

“The society which scorns excellence in plumbing as a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy: neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water”
