Growing up in the pool, swimming was a part of our everyday lifestyle. I cannot even remember a day that I did not know how to swim. Knowing how to swim is an essential life tool that should be provided to everyone. My brother, my Aunt and I are competing in an English Channel Relay. We will begin in Dover, England and each swim for one hour, rotating until we reach France. While we swim in the cold, wavy waters of the English Channel, we hope to remind everyone to be thankful that they know how to swim, and help provide resources to teach those that do not.
