A little different than the usual…
But this is something I strongly recommend you make yourself aware of and stay informed on these issues.
“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.”
This quote just struck me when I came across it because it is such a powerful truth- I completely agree. I believe that this very thing will ruin our world if we don’t start doing something about it. If we as a nation, as individuals, think we can just stand by and let the atrocities of this world happen, then we are already doomed. With things that don’t effect us as individuals, maybe even that we aren’t fully aware of, it can be easy to just say ‘let someone else deal with it’. But, if we continue to just make those excuses, continue to be bystanders, nothing will change- it will only get worse.
International Bill of Rights
- The right to equality and freedom from discrimination.
- The right to life, liberty, and personal security.
- Freedom from torture and degrading treatment.
- The right to equality before the law.
- The right to a fair trial.
- The right to privacy.
- Freedom of belief and religion.
- Freedom of opinion.
Yet these horrible things have happened… and are still happening in our world today:
- The poverty crisis
- Conditions in sweat shops
- Unfair trials
- Torture and abuse
- Child labor
- The denial of education
It is all about the money- What can we gain out of doing this? How will this benefit us? It seems nobody does anything out of the kindness of their hearts anymore; there’s always strings attached!
WE NEED TO TAKE A STAND- THE SMALL ACTIONS MATTER!
We need to be aware of these unjust actions, not turn a blind eye, and not just let these, as well as plenty more atrocities, go unnoticed.
