Is the growing ice bucket practice meant to make me feel less guilty about taking baths instead of showers, which use less of the planet’s water supply? Where are our environmentalists? They have given me the idea over the years that every little bit helps.

There are women in this world walking miles to fetch water just to make a meal for their families. The image of them crossed my mind when I saw the first repost of “ice bucketing.”
