   You have seen me in seas and lakes. There I have a light blue color. You have seen me dancing along a rapid stream. There I have silver in color. You have seen me sailing in the sky as clouds. There I draw my colors from the sun. I am white, I am grey and orange and gold at sunset.

   But you love me when I am in the water bottle that you carry to school. You love me when I help you to remain clean, fresh, and beautiful. I help you to grow plants and trees. I bring life to the world for you.

   So, my dear friend! I need your help. I need your love. I don't like to be polluted with dirty things. I don't like to be wasted. You must help me to remain clean and healthy. I promise to do...... the same for ...... you.
