“All I really want to say is this:

Get in the water.

Walk along the water. Move across its surface. Get under it.

Sit in it. Leap into it. Listen to it. Touch the water. Float on it. Close your eyes and drink a big glass.

Fall more deeply in love with water in all its shapes, colors, and forms. Let it heal you and make you a better, stronger ver- sion of yourself. You need water. And water needs you now.

I wish you water.”

“Preserving, protecting, and restoring our waters are tasks for many lifetimes, and sometimes the effort can seem overwhelming. But as long as we stay connected with all of the many, many blessings that water provides, and continue to keep that love in the forefront of our minds and hearts, as long as we remind ourselves to hope, then our stories will help connect others to water and encourage them to do what they can to help care for this beautiful Blue Marble world.”
