Kevin John Fong, a Kellogg Fellow (KNFP-14), explains why water is the superior choice in defusing fire.
In this article, he makes his case by applying his knowledge of The Five Elements, actual fire fighting methods and words by the global spiritualist and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh. He includes questions for reflection, which can be adapted to the many challenges we face today.
