Colombia has been experiencing quite a drought this year. This drought has contributed to a number of communities being displaced from their land, as well as the heightened reality of thirst and hunger in La Guajira, a desert in northern Colombia.

The word for today, "thirst", reminded me of this reality here in Colombia, as well as to consider the importance of water for all aspects of life.
