Promoting and Protecting the Rights and Dignities of All

We all hear of inhumane actions and injustices. Thankfully we do not need to turn a blind eye now because of the UN’s (United Nation) Universal Declaration of Human Rights is present. The promotion and protection of the rights and dignities of all is a priority for the whole of the international community. Everyone should know that Human Rights is inherent in every human person. With this, it is important for everyone to practice and observe those rights.
