A throwback post …. celebrating December 10 … HUMAN RIGHTS DAY!!
Let me put my two cents in!!
~~CELEBRATING THE DAY SINCE 1948 …. SIXTY FIVE YEARS~~
Human Rights Day is celebrated on December 10, 2013.
The date was chosen to honor the United Nations General Assembly‘s adoption and proclamation on 10 December 1948, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the first global enunciation of human rights and one of the first major achievements of the new United Nations.
Human Rights Day is normally marked both by high-level political conferences and meetings and by cultural events and exhibitions dealing with human rights issues. In addition, it is traditionally on 10 December that the five-yearly United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights and Nobel Peace Prize are awarded.
Many governmental and nongovernmental organizations active in the human rights field also schedule special events to commemorate the day, as do many civil and social-cause organizations.
