-Human Rights Petition video I put together for AP gov
How can we demand less taxes, internet access, free healthcare, healthier food, or jobs when there is still a great number of people in the world who hardly even have the right to be human?
“Wow, that sucks. I wish I could help but, I can’t right now. It’s okay, I’m sure someone else will.” - you.
People talk about losing their faith in humanity, but when that’s all you have left, you try so hard to hang on to it. It’s like holding a rope over a cliff with something heavy hanging on the lower end. The rope represents your own faith in humanity. You decide to let go because you’re tired of holding on to something you’re not even sure is there. Still hanging on the other end is a little boy. Abandoned by his parents. Abused by his owners. And no longer able to sleep because his nightmares have now become his reality.
Your life is no less valuable than the worst-treated person in the world. The only difference is they don’t know that. …And what they don’t know, is killing them.
