Poor River Goddess

Today, on my way to work I was dismayed with the sight of the beautiful river Pinheiros here in São Paulo. It is so dirty. How come we hurt our river so bad? For the Ancient Celts, the river was the Patron Deity of Society, as there could be no society without fresh water. And now we are pouring our sewers and our garbage on Pinheiros. How can Society go on if it does not respect its Patron Deity?
