For hundreds and thousands of years, access to water has been an easy thought. It has become something that we don’t have to think twice about. As many of us know, water is a renewable source because of the water cycle. Canada has an abundant amount of water resources, with almost 20% of the world’s fresh water in our lakes, though approximately 12% is inaccessible. However, not everyone can obtain water that is clean enough for simple day to day activities such as cleaning, bathing, and drinking.
Reasonable access to clean water is a basic human right. I believe this because humans need clean water to survive. Anything that we need to survive we should have a right too. What is reasonable access? Reasonable access means that you should be able to get water without going through too much work.
Life takes a strong toil when war strikes. People start to lose hope in survival and start believing in the wrong source of power. Revenge and world domination. Nevertheless, it takes one to realize what truly matters, and that is life. Consequently, there are factors to lead to one’s survival and hope for a better path.
The challenge of Trump’s border wall is not technical, but logistical. The leap between “building a wall” and “building a 2,000-mile-long continuous border wall in the desert” is about equal to the space between “killing a guy” and “fighting a lasting land war.” This wall would contain over three times the amount of concrete used to build the Hoover Dam — a project that, unlike Trump’s wall, has economic benefits. This wall will take about 21 billion dollars. Instead of using this money for the wall we could feed 7,291,204,190 (about 7 billion) homeless people.
A major theme in the true story, A Long Walk to Water, by Linda Sue Park is perseverance. Perseverance is to stay steady in what you are doing or in a purpose, especially when you are faced with difficulties. This is a perfect theme for A Long Walk to Water because the main character, Salva Dut, an 11 year old Sudanese boy, faced many difficulties and kept going. He took things ‘bit by bit, one step at a time’, a lesson he learned from his uncle that helped him get through the desert, and he applied it to his life and kept going and believing his family was alive. Even though he almost died many times, he did not give up, and he went back to his home country and helped many people have better lives by building wells and giving them clean drinking water.

INTRODUCTION Purified water is essential for living a healthy life as such everyone should have access to it. Drinking water conditions have great impacts on people especially in the rural and remote areas where access to safe drinking water is very important. Drinking untreated water may cause to fatal diseases. Statistics shows that these diseases resulted in ninety percent of all deaths of children under five years old in developing countries, due to low immunization of children to infection. Most of the people in the rural areas are not able enough to use water filters or buy mineral water bottles.
Water is all in all an essential resource on the planet earth. But only 0.3% of the world's total entirety of water can be used as pure drinking water. We need a huge amount of water for drinking every day and also for various other purposes of daily life and for this we take away a huge portion from this 0.3% of pure water.so sea water or ocean water becomes an important source of water. By and large, seawater on the planet's seas has a saltiness of around 3.5%, this means sea water contains dissolved salts of various ions in a huge amount so is unsafe for drinking. Due to this sea water purification has become a major area of concern over the years.
3. Water in the New Testament The first mention of water in the New Testament is found in the Gospel according to John. In chapter 3 Jesus has a conversation with Nicodemus and he says: “very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and spirit”. This is something new for Nicodemus, even though he is a teacher of the Law. How can a man be born again?

Water is a vital resource that everyone depends on in order to carry out activities and simply to survive. Without water, life on Earth would not exist because in order for life to grow and thrive, including humans, depend on water.

These issues have caused conflict over water transportation, usage and the potential of water weaponry.
