Life's concerns: While pollution is an issue, there have been times & situations that were better or worse. Kids have thrived in huts with wood burning fire pits & less than great water sources. There are always issues which we must address & try to improve for our kids. Parents just try to do the best they can to improve the environment their kids live in & hope for the best.
