Water, some have it, in excess, some don't have it at all. At the time of posting this submission there was not one panorama from Africa, where water means everything, where it means life and next day survival for so many. Other regions of the world suffer the same lack of water, with the same deadly consequences.

I had no real plan for my participation in this edition of the wwp, then this scene came into my life and somehow summed up my feelings for the event with the 360° water loop, the abundance and luxury that water brings where I live, children and their wonderful belief and trust in the future – and I can't ever refrain myself from a good laugh.

Sadly in the time it has taken you to read this, 18 people have died from water-borne illnesses. Even more sadly 10 of them are children.

There is no fate and we can fight this situation, The Water Treaty is an online petition you can sign to make access to water a Human Right rather than a commodity in a global market.
