We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. --United Nations Human Rights, Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights

2: Prof. Herman's English 100 College of San Mateo April 2013 | Human Rights Day

English 100 "For someone that LOVES football and watches it whenever possible. I was extremely shocked with the presentation of the Human Trafficking during the Super Bowl. I don't think I can see those Bowls now and not think about what's going on in the outside of the stadium. " --Nori Salas

8: Article #14: Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution. | Though nothing can bring back the hour/ Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;/ We will grieve not, rather find Strength in what remains behind;/ In the primal sympathy/ Which having been must ever be;/In the soothing thoughts that spring/ Out of human suffering;/ In the faith that looks through death./ In years that bring the philosophic mind --Wordsworth

10: I also really enjoyed the musical performance, "Imagine." It was a refreshing transition between a series of powerpoints. I felt a sense of unity between all of us during the song. We were all present, hearing the same words, the same guitar chords. (Where was my lighter when I needed it?) --Brianna Huerta | If I could share with people what happened ... maybe it would convince them . . . --Aleena Asoau

11: Injustice is basically woven into our world. Each problem is so complex and hard to solve because it cannot be separated out from others. The way we look at race and gender can be linked with who ends up in poverty which can also be linked with our education system flaws, and so on. There are cycles like these in society, and they continue to fuel each other. Solving just one problem of injustice is a daunting task because there is no one problem separated from the others. This is what got to me. What am I supposed to do? I know that the worst thing to do is nothing, and that little acts of justice and kindness are valid and helpful on a large scale. but the task feels incredibly overwhelming at times. --Corrie Farbstein

12: Article 29: 1. Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible. | Human Rights Day showed me that there are still a lot of human rights violations in the U.S. It's really disappointing to see because the United States was built for freedom and equality for everyone, so hopefully everyone can make a little change to help others. --Robert Baiata
