Conditions

Living in the conditions of only using water bottles. I have to use them for brushing my teeth, cooking food, drinking water, and showering becomes a hazard for little kids because little kids like to drink the bath water. It gets hard to live the way I use to because I am always worrying about if I drink the water I will become sick or even worse. There have been times where people have died by using the water of Flint. I came to realize that the water doesn’t kick in right away, it takes a while to set in maybe even years! I try never to use the water because I know people personally who have used the water and became sick for weeks just because they used the water on an everyday basis.
