Eleanor and the UDHR

Where, after all, do human rights begin?

“In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world.

Yet they are the world of the individual person: the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works.

Such are the places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination.”
