Water: I love water so much I had the Japanese symbol tattooed on my wrist when I was 21. Water is the giver of life, and without it you would soon die. If you live in the city, you’d best know how to find, store and clean it. I would highly recommend if you live in the city to buy at least one rain barrel, it’s not necessarily used for drinking water unless it is purified but it’s a start. In fact, anywhere outside of your home, purify Your Water.
