Human Rights Day
I am glad bloggers are uniting today on this issue. Human rights is an area I want to get more involved in down the road. When I think of countries like China and it's negative involvement with Tibet, and all of the human rights problems in Africa, and the recent problem with the cyclone in Myanmar and their government not facilitating the aid, it makes me cringe. What people on this planet have had to put up with is beyond belief. I don't think we in America can comprehend it. But as much as we Americans complain about other countries' poor human rights policies, we are not great with human rights either. As long as we have the death penalty, we will be a human rights violator.
