First of all,
I hope you know what these rights we are referring to, are
Or some of them, at least
Otherwise, try completing that assignment first and then, we can talk
And this goes for those that missed our previous class, too!
I appreciate that not every country or territory put their signature to them
But come on, there’s some basic ones you can work with
Out of simple human decency
You can try it, right?
Human rights are not for a few
Human rights are not for the living only
Human rights are not for the dead only
They are for every one
In your respective corner of life
Religion, beliefs, customs, sex, sexuality, culture, colour, age, occupation, gender, country and territory, and any other item
You are unique
And deserve dignity, respect and love
Human rights must be observed and respected at all times
Human rights are not a game
Human rights can’t be carried in bits and pieces…they are one whole package
Human rights are not convenient stores where you only pick out what you need and then leave
You must go all the way for them
Most of all, always remember what we have talked about…
#StandUp4HumanRights for ALL and not just when it is convenient for you!
