Human rights. Some get them. Some don’t.
We are told that we are all born free and equal in rights.
I am blown away by my students today. After learning about the United Nations, Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the efforts of NATO we are each studying an issue in the world where human rights are not followed. There are 30 basic, easy to understand rights in the world- why is it so difficult for people to follow them.
