And In the “If We Can Put a Man on the Moon” Department…

Just a quick pop-in here to share a peek of a most ingenious juxtaposition of marketing and humanitarianism.

Engineers of all flavors are my heroes.

While poets, musicians, and other artists surely serve a most vital inspirational need among humanity, imho it is engineers who have the skills to better the existence of billions of folks clinging to the bare edges of this Big Blue Dot. In short, they alone seem to have the ability to “get the job done”.

And thus, I offer you this minute and a half bit of hope that – if we would just put our minds to it – we can do ANYTHING!

 

A few stats to ponder…

  • More than a BILLION people – almost one-fifth of the world’s population – lack access to safe drinking water
  • Every 21 seconds, a child dies from a water-related illness
  • Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours.
  • EVERY BLESSED ONE of these deaths is PREVENTABLE.

 

Thank You to all the ENGINEERS in the World!

    Yeah! What a brilliant idea.

    We may do our art, write our poems and sooth their souls. But that doesn’t feed them or put water in their cups.

      So true Ted. ‘Tis a tad difficult to be inspired by a sunset or a sonata – when… you’ve not had anything to eat but a handful of termites in a couple of days. ;(
