Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere
Nor any drop to drink.
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
“I can’t believe how true this quote is for the men and women who have served our country and are now homeless. How can it be that in this time we are in, in a land of plenty, that they don’t have access to clean drinking water? I salute I Am Waters Foundation for their efforts to right this terrible injustice in America.”
