What a great
and wondrous gift
is the endowment
of basic human rights.
This make all humans people,
people with the same need for protection,
people with the equal desire for
security and access,
happiness and success.
When these rights are eroded away,
so is the protection,
so is the security,
so is the access to all their needs,
so is the potential for happiness
and so is the possibility of success.
When we affirm this wondrous gift
of equity and justice,
we not only build the lives of others
we also affirm the truth
that we are all human,
all equal in our oneness,
all capable of great things
if given the opportunity
to actualise ourselves.
