When I search Google news for blog ideas, I wish there was a way where I could filter out all of the drowning stories!

The majority of the drownings are all generally avoidable, they mostly involved children and they are all depressing. Socrates was right, part and parcel of being educated is learning how to swim.

That is so so sad. I'm glad that in the Netherlands we have school swimming. In the elementry school the swimnming is part of the curriculum and everyone learns how to swim (if they don.t allready, you can start taking lessons when you are 4 or 5). This saves a lot of life's especially in a water country as the Netherlands!

School swimming in the Netherlands is probably one of the reasons why your country does so well in the Olympics too.
