Human beings have been around and living as nomads for more than 300 000 years. Just ‘recently’, We have started to settle down; and around 3000 years BC, the Sun began to appear over the horizon of the future Civilization with the invention of the writing system; which allowed Us to share the information between each other and enabled Us to grow faster and higher in knowledge.
Along with the discovery of fire, and the invention of the wheel and typing machine; December 10, 1948 was most likely one of the most important days in Our history.
Do We ever wonder, how many People truly know their Human Rights? How many People are out there, unaware of the Declaration? If there is even one Person in the World, that doesn’t know their basic Human Rights, it means that We have not done Our jobs right. As Humans, it is Our job and responsibility to raise the awareness about the Declaration. A brilliant man once said that the right delayed is a right denied.
Considering that We have all the amazing tools such as Internet at Our disposal, We should start working on the concepts and the initiatives that will provide that relevant information to the People. But, not all of Us use Internet in the search for the information. How many Brothers and Sisters are out there, depending on the mainstream media that never offers the information that would improve the lives of the People on everyday basis? Therefore, the Internet alone is not enough. It is Time to descend among the People, and act.
Furthermore, even the People that are familiar with Human Rights are often too passive when it comes to actions, and do not consciously think through about the principles that were written in the Declaration. Considering this, it would be reasonable that the Human Rights should be taught in schools, to complement the studies of Religion and Ethics.
On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and it has been translated into more than 350 languages worldwide.
It is Time for the People to realize that We are all nothing but simple information. The only thing that We all need to do, is to finally decide what kind of information We are; and what kind of information We want to be in the World, and start acting upon that decision.
Thank You for your Time
