Transcript of Human Rights Reflection

Human Rights Equality/same oppertunity A safe and FAIR world Chance Family Needs vs. Wants Means to me... Necessary basic guidelines of life. Human rights should be given to EVERYONE so we can all live equally (having the same oppertunity) with the same necessary amount of help to guide us through our lives. Rules in a game Life being the "game" the human rights are like rules. Every one has the same rules, it is your choice how you play by them. Needs... survival and dignity We all need human rights, weather they are survival rights or dignity rights. Survival rights are most necessary, because they keep people living in order to live by the other rights. Dignity rights are like the real "guidelines" that keep us moving, more specific rights that lead us to a good future. Ex. of survival rights and dignity rights:
We re all born free and equal and the right to life are survival rights, and the right to education the right to play are dignity rights because you are able to survive without those, but they are given to us as we are all equal and hve the same oppertunity. Everyone, as we are all fighting for the same thing. We all need the same basic human rights, the rich and poor, black and white and female or male. They allow us to start are own life regardless of our family's past, because you are a new, different person that has the same oppertunities as any other. Freedom To me, freedom takes a big part in human rights. You have no right over anyone else, and no one has the right over you. You have the freedom to rest (right to play), to move, live withough being slaved, to run a business, freedom of speech (have an opinion).... The biggest "aha" moment I had was... Attawapiskat awarness and situation I was very shocked to know the sittuation the Attawapiskat reserve in CANADA was experiencing. People are suffering just a few hours away, and most Canadian citizens, living in the same country don't know what is happening at all. The issues the reserve is facing are very major, and I am surprised that no one I talked to about it knew what it was until i further explained. Also, I would think that it would be one of the major "news hilights", but I still only here about Attawapiskat when I bring it up. WORDS I CAN ASSOCIATE WITH HUMAN RIGHTS: Everyone is equal, has the same rights giving them the same oppertunity to succeed, or obtain their goals. Safety Human rights make sure every one is safe wherever they are. Protecting them and their familys. Peace In my opinion Human rights enforces peace in the world. It demans equality, which is one of the main goals to obtain peace. If having human rights is a law, why are so many people deprived of them? What daily actions can I take to ensure Human Rights are maintained? Contribute and do my part in the society by respecting other peoples human rights
I can ensure that people around me are not being deprived of their human rights by speaking up
Not discriminating or discounting people based on sex, age, religion or culture
"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps 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. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world." -Eleanor Roosevelt My reflection to the following quote This quote explains that no matter where you live, or who you are everyone has human rights and needs to "uphold them" to seek progress in the entire world (world peace). Every person counts as an individual who has the ability to maintain human rights in their community. I live in a tiny house, in a small community, which is in a big city, in a bigger province, in a bigger country in a huge continent in the world. My responsibility is to maintain human rights wherever I go. Eleanor Roosevelt quoted that no matter where you are, in the smallest communities, we all have human rights that need to be enforced so we can look for a possible positive change in the world. Her statement shows me that no matter how small a part I play in the world, I can play a HUGE part in my community which will cause developpment in the worlds success. What re exceptions of human rights for people with more power, such as presidents, or royalty, are there any? Some Human Rights are considered more of rights we want than rights we need, they are considered dignity rights, taking away our dignity not our life (survival) without them. Even thought these rights are more of "wants" than "needs", we are still entitled to them.
