The ongoing crisis in Flint, Mich., has implications reaching far beyond the lead-laden water the good citizens ingested. Citizens nationwide are looking far more closely at their water supplies. Clean drinking water is something Americans have taken for granted, unlike in countries across the globe.
But water isn’t the only thing we have come to take for granted, which leads to another implication for the Flint water crisis. We take for granted safe food and medicines, certified professionals as opposed to quacks, infrastructure, transportation and much more.
