    Who is affected by water insecurity in your region? How are they affected? How are you impacted by water insecurity?

    Ironically, people that live closest to our largest water source, the Gulf, are affected by water insecurity and land insecurity due to coastal erosion.  This is also impacting sustainability to animals, birds, fish and even insects.

    Continuing to challenge my family to minimize water waste through shorter showers, wash a load of dishes, using rain water to water plants, being thoughtful about separating our trash, carrying a reusable insulated cup during the day, trying to drink my body weight in water daily!
