What’s happening in Flint, Michigan is beyond heartbreaking. Residents cannot drink their water due to lead contamination, but to add insult to injury, the water was originally declared safe. Then, as children began getting sick and the water was exposed as being toxic, government officials, including a slow to react Gov. Rick Snyder (R) finally thought they should do something about the toxic levels. To be blunt, what’s happening there is criminal, and someone needs to be held responsible. President Obama has even declared a state of emergency.
Stepping up big time to help the residents of Flint is none other than the legendary artist Cher. She has been very outspoken in her feelings about what’s been happening. Now, she’s not only voicing her opinion, but putting action to her words, she’s bringing fresh water to the people there who so desperately need it.
Partnering with natural spring water company Icelandic Glacial, Cher is donating 181,440 bottles of water to Flint.
Good on Cher and shame on Snyder. He needs to be behind bars. What he has done is criminal.
