Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a declaration adopted by the United Nations General Assembly (10 December 1948 at Palais de Chaillot, Paris). The Guinness Book of Records describes the UDHR as the "Most Translated Document"[1] in the world. The Declaration arose directly from the experience of the Second World War and represents the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled. It consists of 30 articles which have been elaborated in subsequent international treaties, regional human rights instruments, national constitutions and laws. - From Wikipedia

The Human Rights Action Center animated this thought-provoking video to raise awareness of the basic rights that all citizens of the world should enjoy. They're also petitioning to get the declaration included on all passports. I'm not sure how effective that would be when government(s) consistently abuse its "power." However, in celebrating our new change and ushering in a new world under the leadership of President Obama, I thought I'd share.

Love. Give. Live.
