Is water just H2O?

Commemorative dates usually have a serious intention of some entity behind them. The Valentine’s, for example, aims to increase sales in commerce. Whether you’re romantic and ignore the ploy or not, it’s impossible to deny the interest behind the date. Others have philanthropic purposes, such as World Food Day/Fighting Hunger, October 16th. The fact is that on these dates there is always a mobilization of the good in favor of the cause.

Well, today is World Water Day! The date was established by the United Nations (UN) in 1993 with the purpose of alerting the population about the need to preserve the resource to ensure the survival of all ecosystems in the world.
And what do the people of the world do on this day? To say that we drink water in celebration would be pretty funny. Perhaps the richest and most powerful on the planet, who can change the world, drink champagne instead of water. In fact, very likely.

A day to give to the waters

And what does it has to do with you? What do you do for the waters of our planet? Is there a beach, lake, river, swamp, fountain or similar near where you live? Even if you say no, there is almost certainly an underground aquifer or river. No?! Are you sure? But some of the aerial rivers are certainly close by or that influence your region, there’s no denying that!
You must already be wondering where I want to go. It’s in the title! And you with that?! Ask yourself this question with all the honesty and time that the topic deserves. What have you been doing effectively to protect our planet’s waters?
A connection that we ALL have not only with the waters, but with the oceans is, after all, close to you, in the manhole of your street. This is a door that is sure to give at some point in the oceans. Now we are starting to see more clearly the physical connection that we all have. And at the same time, we can think of MANY actions that can make a difference in protecting our rivers, seas and oceans.
