and why we always need to respect it!
It is easy to fall in love with the water. There is a soothing and exciting quality to it. It can be a whispering brook or a roaring rapid whisking you off somewhere exciting. It hydrates us, bathes us and well, it is just fun to be in and around.
All of the things we love about the water makes it all to easy to forget the real power it holds and become complacent around it.
- 71% of the earth's surface is covered in water
- People cannot breath under water (obviously)
- 54% of Americans can't swim or can't preform the all the basic life saving skills
- Drowning is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional death worldwide
Scary to think about right? But there is no need to be scared, just prepared. Getting educated, learning the facts and what you can do to keep yourself and your family safe is the first step. Second, get the skills you need to make that happen. We will see you at the pool!
