H is for Human Rights

H

 

Human rights are the basic freedoms and protections that people are entitled to simply because they are human beings.

  • Human Rights are Universal

They belong to everyone, regardless of their race, sexuality, citizenship, gender, nationality, ethnicity, or abilities.

  • Human Rights are Inherent

We are all born with human rights. They belong to people simply because they are human beings.

  • Human Rights are Inalienable

They cannot be taken away – period. No person, corporation, organization, or even government can deprive another person of his or her rights.

  • Human Rights can be Violated

Although they are inalienable, they are not invulnerable. Violations can stop people from enjoying their rights, but they do not stop the rights from existing.

  • Human Rights are Essential

They are essential for freedom, justice, and peace.UDHR-wordle-website

    • It doesn’t seem that difficult to be tolerant but apparently it is for many which is a shame. I figure we’re all doing our best so let’s cut each other some slack and be encouragers and cheer leaders along the journey. Thanx for the visit. I tried to reciprocate but the site wasn’t playing nice 😦 visiting back from A-Z Challenge 2014
