Today is Human Rights Day. A day marking and celebrating the United Nations adoption and proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948. I think it is safe to say that we all ache for the day where we not only celebrate a proclamation, but also celebrate a proclamation becoming a reality. Not just for some…but for all. Until then…we can begin at home.
“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
