You read about so much in the news that you can’t do anything about. It’s overwhelming and leaves you shaking your head and sighing. But the Flint Water Crisis is different.
At least Ms. MMK thought so. Therefore, she decided to do something about it and make it a teachable moment for our son SJ.
It was a couple months ago when Ms. MMK first read about the Flint Water Crisis. She was horrified.
SJ was nearby, and she decided to tell him about it. He understood enough. “Their water is like poisoned – people need water in life,” he said.
Once she was sure SJ understood the circumstances, Ms. MMK asked, “What do you think we should do?”
He said, “We should send them water.”
