Something that I really took away from assignment is the importance of water. Water affects ecosystems, environment, and our health. However, water can also affect education and the economy. With no water in schools or no water in general, it can lead kids to drop out to withhold the responsibility for hauling water. Gathering water takes away not only from education but for people to pursue job opportunities. I believe that water is a environmental justice issue because water is a right that all people should have. It's such a necessity that shouldn't be taken away or have to be earned.
