Thankful for safe water

Today I am thankful for safe water. Where I am here in the town of Entebbe, Uganda, we have safe water. Where I’m going up North tomorrow to work for this month, not so much. In the rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa, making sure we have water that is safe to drink it is a big part of how many people spend their days. Many, many women all over the world spend a huge amount of their time carrying water. I see them around me all the time, heavy jugs on their heads. If you are fortunate to have access to clean, running water, that is something for which you might consider yourself very fortunate.
