Human Rights Day 2010
As a mom, we are most concern on what is happening in our surroundings. It is very unfortunate that on a daily basis we hear about so many human rights violations happening around us. Today is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Day. The key principle for the Human Rights Day is “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights".
Age, gender, race and other things does not matter; all humans should be treated equally. I admire the strength of those mothers who have children who were victims of human rights violation. I would not wish to be in their shoes; but I pray that God will continue to give them strength. I have read one very good quotes about a mother's feeling towards her child. A mother carries her child inside the womb for nine months and once she gives birth, she carries her child in her heart forever.
In reality, discrimination does exist and I think that most mothers would agree that we are all praying that none of our children would experience discrimination. In a way, Human Rights Day remind us that we as mothers should do everything to defend the rights of our children and our family.
Have you experienced any discrimination, most especially at work?
