Andrew M. Means Prochaska 1 September 2010 Kefentse Zuma Rev.2: Resources August 22, 2010 I was finishing my homework when my father walked in the door with a bag full of fish. He had a very pleased look on his face as it seemed we had enough fish to last us for months. He had to start the process of washing the fish so my mother could cook the fish for dinner tonight. We are very fortunate to be among the 74% of residents in our country with safe running water. I decided to help my father wash the fish since it was a vast amount of fish. As I started washing, he told me not to spend more than twenty seconds on one fish. I asked him why not because we need for our fish to be completely clean. He replied, “20 seconds is all you need.

I found some encyclopedias, and I was ready to get cracking. I started reading up on our country, and I was shocked with what I found. Turns out water resources are really only available to the major cities. People are struggling with finding clean water all over our country. This really saddened me and I took a really good look at myself. We took our running water for granted for a while. I hope that I can be someone in the future that can raise awareness to the major cities that clean water is needed everywhere. I am only twelve, but I see myself making a difference in a particular issue in the near future....
