What We Humans Need
Saturday, May 23, 2020
Once upon a time, years ago, I memorized a list of needs that an outstanding teacher had created for her poor class in Mississippi. They were:
I believe she tried to list them in the order that, without them, we would perish.
She included 'love' because of Failure to Thrive. It's real; we need each other. Caring about each other keeps us alive.
I have found this list useful at many times, and in many regards, over the years. Today I am thinking about it because I wonder who is watching over our air and water quality? In the US, late on Friday March 28th, enforcement of EPA regulations was suspended indefinitely. Will they be reinstated? When? Is another organization looking out for all humans in this regard?
I need clean air and clean water for optimal health. So do all humans. Today I am thankful for anyone looking out for us in that regard.
