Here's what was sent to me via email.
"Happy National Human Rights Day! Celebrated annually across the
world on this day, Human Rights Day highlights the United
Nations General Assembly's adoption of the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights in 1948. The UDHR was one of the first global
proclamations of human rights providing a common standard of
achievement for the rights and freedoms of people around the
world. Though the UDHR is not a binding document, it has served
as the catalyst for more than 60 human rights instruments geared
toward declaring international standards for the rights of
humanity. The UN Secretary-General even launched a year-long
campaign building up to the 60th anniversary of the UDHR in
2008. Here's to humanity!"
Keep your eyes open and don't believe the hype.
