Human Rights Day

Today is Human Rights day.  A time to stand up for those who are denied the rights we all deserve.

"Human Rights Day marks the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) adopted on December 10, 1948 that set down the basic principles at the very heart of the human rights movement. The UDHR has enabled remarkable progress in human rights, inspiring international human rights standards, laws and institutions that have improved the lives of many around the world.

For more information on Human Rights Day and ways that you can help go to the United Nations website.

I am always reminded of the well-known doctor when considering the worth and rights of people around the world:  

"A person's a person, 
No matter how small."

       Dr. Seuss
