The story of the Flint water crisis is not just about the
politics — it's about the people. Residents continue to use case after case of
bottled water every day for general hygiene, cooking and drinking. These are
the faces of the people of the man-made disaster that lead to more than 10,000
children being exposed to lead-tainted drinking water and a spike in elevated
blood lead levels. These are real people. Neighbors. Sons. Mothers. Friends.
Fathers. Daughters. Each is a human being who wants a basic human right, who
want clean water running through our taps.
