    "Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world" - Eleanor Roosevelt

    Unfortunately, due to poverty and human rights violations, Article 25 is one of many rights that remain elusive for much of the world.

    Yes, plus if we had equality, we could be part way to eliminating
    poverty and other things.Jus' sayin'

  • Joe Wylie,

    The plight of the hapless Cambodians sounds like something from another planet. Then again, when you find yourself so far in hock to the power company that it'll be Xmas before you've paid for the dubious privilege of staying warm(ish) through winter, so does the world inhabited by those who Dine for Dignity.

    As this problem has become an annual financial crisis, you might consider moving Freedom Week to a warmer part of the year. Seriously.
