Water. Big issue. Trailer from the new film FLOW (or For the Love Of Water).

March for Water. So what does that mean exactly? It's a day to highlight the human right to clean water. Tomorrow, in over 27 countires, people will be observing World Water Day (India alone has seven different events taking place).

So it's fitting that Los Angeles, with many of it's own water issues, will play host to a variety of water related events tomorrow. And even if you can't make it to these events, take the time tomorrow to learn a little more about water.

[The march highlights] the local state water crisis that has resulted from a dysfunctional management. It is time to recognize the importance of water in our local environment, our lives, and the planet.

It's easy to take advantage of the ease with which we can obtain water. We don't need to work or think too hard when we want water. I mean the ocean's are SO big. Right, but "about 2.5 percent of the Earth's water is fresh and suitable for drinking". So sooner than later, Southern California (and the world), with it's drought and dirty beaches, is going to be in a difficult position. Get educated. March. Use less. Raise awareness.
Start: Los Angeles State Historic Park // 1245 N. Spring Street
End: El Rio de Los Angeles State Historic Park // 1900 N. San Fernando Road
