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.
