    Wow, what an incredible story. I love the bucket list concept, it's a phenomenal way to express the urgency.

    Pat, do you have any affiliation with WATERisLIFE?

      Hi Sean, no I don't. I just thought it what was a wonderful story that needed to be shared.

        Couldn't agree more, absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing, Pat.

    Really makes you think about life priorities. Thanks for sharing. Water is amazingly what unites us all. 70% of all our bodies are made of it, yet not all of us get to consume healthy drinking water. It's therefore important that we figure out a way to bring healthy drinking water to everyone in the world.
