"What are Human Rights?" Lessons for Kids

I really enjoy this poster as it encourages students to not discriminate people, showing that we ultimately hold the responsibility to respect the rights of others. I would use this poster as an entry point for students to look at current issues, such as #BlackLivesMatter, and see the unethical and immoral acts people partake in when in the possession of power.

This makes me want to have kids. Kids that understand and value every single person on this earth for what they are - equals.

"What are Human Rights?" Lessons for Kids

We are all born free- hence "all men are created equal" by God, (Gen. 1-3) In America, you are protected by our Constitution.. Our society was founded on moral principles,(10 commandments) when moral principles are compromised ( as the break down of the Family) then freedom looses it place in lives. Its replaced by a social state. rights become unequal as minority rights over yours. Sin is not a right, it's a wrong choice. I don't have the right to do wrong.

It might not seem revolutionary now to say "women's rights are human rights and human rights are women's rights"—but in 1995, in China, it was. Hear Hillary describe what it was like to stand behind the podium and say those words.

How often do we play into the way our culture labels ourselves and encourages us to label others?

Yes to this, but at the same time, we shouldn't need the idea of reciprocity in order to help others. Are you okay with being the kind of person who sits and does nothing while other people are suffering? Are you okay with benefitting from their suffering? Is that the kind of person you want to be? No? Then maybe you should fight for the oppressed. Use your voice and your privilege to help others.
