Water: a source of life

Howstuffworks states that humans can go up to eight weeks without food as long as they have water, and probably live for about 3 to 5 days without any water.

The Quran states that water is important to life (and that life comes from water) translated as “We made of water every living thing” (Al-Anbya 21:30).

The human body is more than 50% water, (Some stats say Babies: 75%, Adults: 55-60%)

For the last few years, my basic drink has been water. I drink more than 2-3 liters every day. How much water do you drink?

First Aid

Thinking of Egypt, the people on the streets, and remembering my first-aid training: are they breathing? Pulse? Need CPR? look for bruises, scratches, blood… A need to help those in need for it.

I am sure that people who have been sleeping too little for days, uncertain about the future: their country, as well as their own… Thinking about if they will live through it or die fighting on the streets of their city… Need a lot of first-aid services… Do they have enough people who can provide it? Do they have enough supplies? Probably not.

My prayers go to them: the people of Egypt.
