As you prepare your Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow and take a moment to give thanks or to consider the sources of the bounty of food on your table, take another moment to reflect on where the water comes from that is vital to food production and all of life.

Would we have stronger ethics and stewardship of water if our lives and political boundaries were organized around it? As argued in the article, if you care about food and the land where you live, you have to care about water.

Happy Thanksgiving!
