In Honor of Human Rights

It is inherently right
to be as you are
to speak your mind
to be free
to eat fully nourished
to follow your dreams
to communicate with others
to take a rest
to congregate spiritually
to demand justice
to walk unabated
to travel unwatched
to see what we seek
to be human
to be alive

It is our right undeniably to live!

Simple, but effective. I hope more people's eyes are opened up today to what's really important in this world. :)

Well put. If only the power-hungry, evil-doers out there respected that right.
