World Toilet Day

World Toilet Day

Can you imagine not having a toilet
Or privacy when you need to pee
Unthinkable in wealthy countries
But world-wide - - REALITY
In fact one in three people
Living in this world don’t know
Access to a working toilet
Or privacy when they must go
In order to raise our awareness
World Toilet Day has been proclaimed
And November 19th was established
As the day when our thoughts should be aimed
At changing this sad situation
And this world-wide problem we beat
On this we must all stand united
Until everyone can take a seat

    Nope - another true story. I believe the first World Toilet Day was established in 2009 or 10. I just found out about it this year. (I was going to say I had to take a stand but I'll sit on that comment in support of the day). Mike
