Narrator: A lot of people in the world don’t have clean water to drink. I’m going on a tour to see what it’s like.
Mother: My children and I have to walk long hours to get water. And the water isn’t even clean!
Kate: (pointing to Tom) Tom got sick just from eating that yucky water!
Jamie: We don’t get to go to school and learn. And we never get to play!
Narrator: While the mother and her children are going to get water, we will hear how life goes from the father.
Father: I work in the yard and harvest food for my family. It is very hard work without water to feul me.
Narrator: Hmm. It seems that the mother and children are not home yet.
. . . .
Narrator: (annoyed) It’s been 2 hours now. Shouldn’t they be home yet?
Father: No! It’s not near the time they get home! They are usually home in around 6 hours.
Narrator: Oh . . . then I’d better go.
Father: Okay. . . but I kinda wanted you to stay. It gets a little lonely.
Narrator: Well, sorry, but I really gotta get home to my family.
Father: Okay, bye!
(Mother and children come back and get seated for supper)
Father: Hello! I’ve brought us our cold vegetables and uncooked rice!
(There is silence while they are eating)
Mother: Oh, dear. I do wish Narrator were here to tell the audience a little more.
Father: It’s okay. Anyways, it’s time to pray, cause clean water would change everything!
