Dear Future President,
I believe everybody should live a healthy lifestyle and should be the best they could be, I also believe that all of this starts with a fresh bottle of water in the morning. I think that water contamination and poor water is not a healthy way to start your day, more then 300 million children die of waterborne diseases, that’s not a good way to start your day. Every day when the bus drops me off to go to school my bus drives by the old Willow Grove Airbase, the well where my area gets its water from is near the airbase. About 5 years ago, when the airbase was still in action, they were using Perfluorooctanic Acid and Perfluorooctane to put out fires on the grass, the Acid sunk into the ground and made our wells for water bad for us. This is water pollution, water pollution is when the pollutants go directly into the water without treatments to remove the pollutants. People started complaining of bad taste and white water, Simmons Elementary also suffered from white and foul tasting water.
I believe clean water is the key to a good, fresh start and polluted water is not a good way to start your day. That is why I need you to listen to me and change the ways of trash and toxin removal, I need you to find a better way to start off all of our days with nice, healthy clean water. If you were one of those kids suffering from waterborne diseases you would want to do something about it, and also as the president you would want to save children's lives by putting a filter on the water and keeping your country safe and healthy.
