Flint’s Water Isn’t About Flint

It’s about all of us: 

The response to this crisis needs to go far beyond providing potable water to Flint residents. It needs to go beyond providing financial grants to local government and community organizations. The challenge, in a nutshell, is to channel this country’s considerable business, industrial, intellectual, and financial power toward rebuilding the city of Flint. Why Flint, you may ask, when many other cities are suffering under similar economic and social conditions? The answer: because Flint is the city where the disinvestment, dysfunction, and neglect got so bad that children were poisoned.

We could do this with a day’s worth of what we spent blowing up Iraq and Afghanistan.
