I was curious on how long a person can survive without food and water since we have Tom's father going on 2 weeks and he's still hanging in there.

What I read is that second to oxygen water is the most important compound that the human body needs for survival. However, the amount of water needed depends on different conditions such as your physical activity and climate.

It's interesting, but not exactly accurate in this case.

Have a blessed Sunday!

They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
