Why we need to save water? For what? How it is going to help?

I would like to introduce you the reason why we need to treasure our clean water and not to waste it. So when you use water at home, think about it, and stop running water while you wash dishes or brush your teeth just because. Run it only when you need it.
It seems like we have so much water on our planet, so people may not understand why we need to “Save” water, what’s the problem with “wasting” it?
Over 97% of the Earth’s water is salty and not drinkable (like ocean water), and of the remaining freshwater (which makes up less than 3%), only a small percentage can be used. About 70% of Earth’s freshwater is held in the icecaps and glaciers of our planet. The rest of the freshwater that remains is mostly underground (groundwater). What all of these numbers add up to is that only about 0.3% of all the water on Earth is usable! This is mostly the water from sources like rivers, streams, and lakes.
The total amount of water on Earth stays pretty constant, and the freshwater that we use is naturally replaced by The Water Cycle. However, it becomes a problem if we’re using water more quickly than it can be replaced, or if we’re polluting our freshwater supplies and making them unusable. So imagine, every household just waste water everyday by just running it for no special reasons. I know, every person, you have idea you do it sometimes. I admit, I do it too and I want to make correction in my life to protect our Earth. DO NOT THINK your clean running water from your facet will last forever because it WON’T.
There are lots of ways you and your family can contribute to saving water.

For example….
*Avoid running the dishwasher or washing machine unless it is full. Just wait until it is full. That’s all.
*Turn off the water while you brush your teeth or in between washing dish and rinse them off. Wet teeth brush or dish sponge, and turn water off. Turn water back on when you rinse your mouth or dishes. Simple!
*Get all of your leaks and drips fixed ASAP. Leak sounds annoying anyway, so why wait? Fix them now. Small drop all night all day, you will be surprise how much water you are wasting.
*If you pour a glass of water and don’t finish it, save the rest for later. It will help you have less glass to wash as well. 😉 The water won’t go bad even if it sits out. Or, pour it out into the plants in your home. Don’t just drain it.
*Don’t run shower for no reasons before you take one. Some people just let shower run forever before they step into it. Just turn shower on just before you step in.

These things, you can do everyday of your life and it is not hard to do!
Just by doing these simple things, you can save A LOT OF WATER. Saving water means saving others, saving this planet, saving our future. Don’t easy look because it is available to us everyday. We want to protect our planet and natural resource that is essential for us to live.

Do something good for our home, Earth. Don’t be selfish!! Let’s support each other, help each other, protect our planet together and build healthy living environment together for our future.

If there is no money in this world…

there will be no hunger, no poverty, a lot less crimes, more peace in the world, we can simply be ourselves, we can focus better to use our individual talent to help people and this world. It will also create healthier environment for our planet. 

It seems like almost impossible to create the world with no money or such thing today. People will be lost if money disappear. There will be no business like it exists now. Almost everything we do is based on money. We will not have to do anything we do for work. Whole school system will be changed. (now school is more focusing on educating children to have basic knowledge in our society and to work), There will be no technology war like now. Life may seem inconvenient without money. 
But… It still may be better without money for our future. 
Money centered human society came too far and it keeps going further and further where today it is hurting not only human community, it is hurting whole planet. Global warming, Animal extinction crisis, serious pollution, radiation problems, producing enormous amount of waste, using up all precious natural resources… and just so much more.

We are straight on our way to destroy this world.

We need to wake up now and take this seriously. I am sad when I talk about this kind of matter, people look at me funny.
Why?

Most of people close their eyes and act like there is no such thing as global warming.

Most of people think animal extinction has nothing to do with them.

Yes, every single person has something to do with animal extinction, global warming, pollution and all that environmental problems. People are too busy working and focusing on money, materials, career and surviving in our human box society. Most of people are too busy working not to spend enough time with and pay full attention to their own children.

Only if every single person can be aware about this global problem that is destroying our planet(our life source, our future) and focus more on to take care of our home(our planet) and our children. Only if everyone can see most important thing is to focus on taking care of children and our home, our environment, this beautiful planet.. 

Presidential Election. Conventions and the future America.

I am not political at all.(it does not mean I do not care about the country). I live in United States but I am an immigrant from Japan.

I am born and raised in Japan and I came to this country when I was 17 years old as an exchange student.

I have been living in this country for over 15 years now.

 

I love America.

I love Japan, my home.

 

Right now, there is presidential election war going on toward November. I heard Romney and Obama speaking. And there were so many more amazing speeches by other people as well.

I have no right to vote,  Because I am Japanese citizen.

But I love this country with all my heart. That is why I live here and had my son here. As I am international person, I have much of international view about this country. There are so many things that can be corrected. There are so many great things that no other country in the world have. Every country is the same way. It is just like no person is perfect, no country is perfect. Existence of Ying and Yang. It is the universal law.

 

I truly wish the best for America.

 

Equality every way, Harmony, Peace, Happiness, Health, Rights, Great Education, Taxes, health care, and costs that make senses to people, Best for the future generations, Special care for the  Environment and the Earth, Good leadership to have great foreign relationship, Equal respect for elderly, young, children, rich, poor, middle class, any races and any nationality, LOVE and CARE  and so much more I cannot write all.

I can tell the same thing to any other countries in the world including my own home, Japan.

 

Yes, I am a person who wish we can all live in harmony together under the same roof named Earth, as United Nations of Earth.

 

Most of all, Fundamental part of humanity,  we all should receive equal respect, equal rights, always respect each other and care and love for each other and the Earth that will promote peace and harmony to our lives and the planet. And please, please NO WAR no matter what. War is one of the worst thing we can do as humans. It is simply mass killing event that has no care and love for each other. 100% negative and there is no positive reasons to have war.

I may sound like I am talking about such unreal dream, but I think it is really fundamental part of us.

 

We all live on this one planet, Earth. We all are connected. Out of billions of planets in the space, We all live together on one planet. and we all call it home. We feel pain in our heart when we see children ding other side of the world. When one major country hit economy crisis, rest of the world will be effected. We all depend on each other some way and we all support each other many ways.

 

I simply care about the Earth and people.  and I want all of us to be happy and have a great environment so we can live our lives to the fullest.

I want my son and our future generations to have great lives and I want our beautiful Earth to be healthy forever.
