Shall we all drink together?

Today is World Water Day, an annual observance instituted by the United Nations:
World Water Day is an international day of observance and action to draw attention to the plight of the more than 1 billion people world wide that lack access to clean, safe drinking water. Clean, fresh drinking water is essential to human and other lifeforms. World Water Day aims to increase people's awareness of the water's importance in all aspects of life.
This year's theme is "Water Cooperation."

It's easy to dismiss these aspirational international efforts, but we have to start somewhere.
