Access To Clean Water By james Kim

There are lots of countries who are not able to have access to clean water. For example, in Africa, there are people who have no choice but to drink dirty water from one of the lakes since it it the only available water source around them. I hope that I will somehow be able to help these people by giving them clean water or a filter system of some sort so that they will be able to drink clean water.

How I had arrived at this inspiration was when i had gone to a retreat last year or earlier this year, there was this person who was explaining how there was people in Africa who were forced to drink dirty water and had to carry water from large distances. He showed us a picture of the people living there and they were not exactly healthy. This relates to me on a personal level (maybe?) because I thought that it was pretty unfair how there was people who are forced to drink dirty water while we have access to clean water and sometimes, even being wasteful of it due to the "abundance" of it. When I learn more about this issue, I want to somehow make it so that I would be able to at least do something to help them to make their lives easier. (Not yet sure how to) However, you all should consider this because right now, you all have access to clean water (or I hope so) and there are people who are not able to enjoy that pleasure like you do.

10 reasons why climate change is the issue of the year

The other inspiration that caught my attention was climate change. As you all know, the earth is experiencing global warming and the climate is going crazy. This inspiration listed 10 reasons why climate change is an issure. The person who posted this inspiration was Minjun Seo.

This relates to me on a personal level because climate change is going to affect everybody living in it and naturally, this includes me too. Global warming is going to raise up the average temperature and will also affect rivers and agriculture. That means that this will affect one of our major food sources and can affect our daily life. What I want to accomplish when I learn more about the issue is to bring awareness that climate change is going to affect us in the future if not now and somehow make it so that people will be more cautious. You all should consider this because climate change is not going to affect some other place across half the world, it's going to affect YOU also and we need to make change.
