Only Water?

As many of you know. . .West Virginia has experienced a chemical spill that poisoned the water sources for a HUGE number of the people living here (it has made it further and into Ky and Ohio now). I will say this. . .the ignorance of too many in our population was rarely made more clear to me than during this. . .

I cannot even count how many: "It's ONLY Water" posts I saw.

It is ONLY water? Ye...s, water. . .the single most important resource we take for granted...

Only water. . .shouldn't intelligent beings know better than to ever say..."Only Water?"

Oh, we. . .take . . . so . . . much for granted. . .assuming it will always be corrected for us, it will cause us no lasting trouble, no harm . . .

And we are sheep and so blind. . .



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
