For World Toilet Day, Monday, November 19, and all times
From Marianna Tubman
All human beings are the same in this . . .
Every day we need to find a way to relieve the body of its waste.
So, when we have facilities to make this private, easy, clean, and safe, let us wish the same for everyone!
And reflect with gratitude upon our simple blessings.
And give thanks for all those who have helped or help make it possible:
- For the one who built this toilet, the one who installed it, the one who cleans it;
- For the plumbing, the water, the paper, the cleaning supplies, the fan to take the smell away, the sewage treatment plants for processing of the waste;
- For the rivers and fields and soil microbes which accept back whatever we get rid of.
May we be mindful and not take for granted the hard work and kindness of everyone who contributes to our lives.
