Moesha Leary - Student - Deep Creek Middle School I think water is a powerful substance.  It can relax a mind, help a thirst, and it helps things grow.  Living in an archipelago makes it even more important to me because it’s what surrounds me.  I can never escape it.  It makes me want to know what is in it and how I can protect it.  I am very afraid to lose it because if it is lost, my family may not make any money.  Both of my parents work for jobs that must include it.  If I lose the pure drinking water I will die and so will everyone else around me.  It makes me want to save it and find out ways to keep it forever.
