This is a favorite quote of mine from Edmond Burke.  Read it again, it speaks volumes and absolutely drives me as I go about my life.  It also comes to mind as I think about Charity:Water and their mission to bring clean water to millions of people around the world.

If you are not aware of Scott Harrison and his new mission, you need to do your research.  Watch him tell his story, it’s quite inspiring and touching.  This September they are focusing specifically on Rwanda, and with that founder Scott Harrison is calling people to donate their September to bring clean water to Rwanda.

“Kids are carrying dirty water back to their homes each day knowing it will make them sick.”
