A Daily Occurrence

Every day we see people carrying water from the local wells to their homes.  Sometimes it is in buckets, 5 gallon jerry cans, big wash tubs or whatever they can find.  We see young children to "seniors" ferrying the water home.  Consider the fact that the smallest bucket/tub/whatever that we see is 3 gallons.  Each gallon weighs over 8 pounds.  I have seen what appears to be 7-8 year olds carrying 5 gallons (over 40 pounds) on their heads.
