Drowning Doesn't Look Like Drowning
This has very little to do with businesses, charities, or anything else we usually concern ourselves with here, but as a mother who is terrified of her kids not breathing, I think this article on how to recognize someone drowning is worth sharing. The author's key point is that drowning is a silent event and not the loud arm-thrashing, wailing show of distress we see in the movies. This is especially true for children. As the author puts it, "Childen in the water make noise. When they get quiet, you get to them and find out why."
