    "We must make sure that it"s not a luxury but a necessity."
    In this episode, James discusses the importance of being able to swim. While it may not seem this way at the first glance, issues like drowning are problems that stem from a lack of equity. Children who are not privileged enough to be taught are at much higher risk of drowning than those who are. Kids must be taught basic skills like this in order to ensure safety.
