I know nothing about Jacques Cousteau.
Therefore, my essay will not be elongated with “insider information” or speculation.
The name “Cousteau” brings to my mind a very favorable thought: “Thank you for doing it.”
There are so many people who do so many jobs, and pioneer so many different arenas that ultimately help us as the human race—but I never take the time to learn about them or even understand much of what they do.
I’m just glad they’re there.
I’m grateful for the man or woman who put yeast in my bread.
I’m very grateful for the Department of Agriculture for making sure that my meat is Triple A.
Somewhere at the FDA, there is a tireless employee who feverishly works to find a way to get rid of my fever.
And then there’s Jacques Cousteau. He studied the oceans and found ways to make it easier for others to study in the future by inventing an apparatus to help us imitate a fish.
God bless him.
I appreciate him. I don’t know much, but I’m grateful.
