Happy 60th Anniversary

Today is the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Have you signed the petition?  Do so now.  It's up to us.

I call for a recommitment to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which recognizes that "the inherent dignity and... the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world."

I accept and respect the principles outlined in the Declaration and call on my government and the newly elected President of the United States to recommit to the Declaration and lead the world by example.
