fripodding and blogging for action – water


Today in Internetland is Blog Action Day. What is that? Check it out for yourself. But in short, every year, those who participate all discuss one topic on their blog. One topic that we as a society truly care about and want to take action to help change. This year the topic is WATER. Not just how good it is and how good for you, but how so many people on this planet are without it. It’s truly sad that something so vital to our survival, as humans, isn’t accessible to all humans.

So for those that can, take the time to donate to one of the many charities that offer help to countries and people who are struggling to obtain water. My guess is, if you’re able to read this blog now, you have easy access to water. And the point I mean to make by that is: don’t take it for granted. If you can do something to help, please do so. Or the very least, help me and the others around the world spread the word! (I have a widget on my sidebar to click on, as well as the links in this post.)

Water isn’t my particular charity I’d like to donate to. I do support Child Fund and I consider myself an arts activist of sorts. I’ve somewhat expanded my quest to education, since arts in schools seem to be disappearing. Well, it was in mine. BUT that’s not what we’re talking about today… it’s all about water for those who can’t get water.

When I heard about the topic this year, I knew just the song to include with today’s friPod! (I also found it coincidental that Blog Action Day landed on a Friday.) Here is one of the best and most talented names in hip hop, and self admitted conspiracy theorist, (and a pretty good actor too), Mos Def dropping truth bombs about water in today’s world. What I also find interesting is this album is timeless. Released in the 90’s, many of his socially conscious songs still relate to today’s times, including this one.

Later on, I remembered a favorite Temptations song which really isn’t as socially conscious as the song posted above, but metaphorically can be connected. Plus it’s a good song and anytime for a Temptation song is a good time. But please donate to some charities to get some wells built or they will run dry.
