International human rights day

  1. 1.   International  Human  Rights  Day      
  2. 2. Felicia  Browne:   Human  and  Gender  Rights     Peace  Ambassador  -­‐  Caribbean     Every  day,  we  are  confronted  with  some  of  the  most  inhumane  acts  of   injustices  and  wonder  what  role  Human  Rights  plays  in  our  society.  We   are  taught  that  every  human  being  including  children  have  fundamental   rights  that  are  unique  primarily  due  to  the  fact  that  they  are  part  of  the   Human  species.  Our  human  race  is  like  any  other  species,  have  been   given  rationality  as  a  means  to  separate  us  from  other  empirical  beings.   The  purpose  of  rational  thought  and  understanding  has  afforded  us  to   have  external  knowledge  of  our  existence,  as  well  have  techniques  to   manipulate  our  natural  ecologies.  However,  our  responsibilities  to   uphold  sacred  laws  of  human  sanity  and  peace  have  continued  to   remain  our  great  challenges.       Today,  as  we  honor  the  human  nature  of  each  other,  we  should  to  reflect   on  our  duty  as  brothers  and  sisters  to  encourage  the  good  nature  within   us.  We  should  also  remember  great  leaders  who  have  inspired  our   humanities-­‐  and  the  injustices  that  they  too  endured.  How  often  do  we   think  of  someone  who  become  a  world  leader  for  human  rights  and  the   unjust  acts  that  he/she  suffered,  yet  in  the  end,  we  recognize  what  their   efforts  were  and  the  differences  that  they  made.  Our  triumphs  and   histories  are  different  but  we  are  always  able  to  connect  with  each  other   as  human  beings.  We  are  human  by  our  very  nature  to  feel  happiness,   joy,  disappointed,  disgust,  grief,  love  and  peace.  We  are  bonded  by  our   human  family  and  our  destinies,  though  diverse  many  lead  to  a  common   cause,  mainly  peace,  within  our  shared  experiences.       May,  we  continue  to  live  as  good  men,  women  and  children  and  practice   our  right  to  equal  freedom,  knowledge  and  tolerance.  International   Human  Rights  Day  is  a  day  that  we  recognize  that  the  human  family   exists  in  us  all.  Human  rights  are  fundamental  rights-­‐  a  right  to  be   honored  for  one’s  existence  in  this  great  universe-­‐  with  a  present,  past   and  future.       Happy  International  Human  Rights  Day.
