Human Rights Day 2018By Kunal Mehta
This summer I participated in a study abroad trip where we went to Greece and Italy to report on the refugee crisis. In Catania, Sicily, they had a celebration for World Refugee Day that happened earlier in the week. One of the most memorable and overwhelming moments was when three refugees started reading the Universal Delcaration of Human Rights:
Article I: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Article III: Everyone has the right to life, liberty and the security of person.
Today is the 70th anniversary of the signing of the UDHR, and it seems more relevant and necessary now than ever.
