Bloggers Unite for Human Rights...
Today is a day for bloggers to come together and stand on one issue, this time it's human rights.
What can I possibly say about human rights? It's overwhelming and unbelievable to me that while I sit comfortably on my couch, there are people around the world suffering from unbelievable abuse.
Even in our own backyard.
Around the world, there is violence against women, violence against children, terror in the streets.
What can we do?
We can sign a petition.
We can vote.
We can make phone calls and write letters.
We can put bumper stickers on our cars. (We can drive our cars less!)
We can travel and help and support.
And we must do all these things.
Because we can't stand idly by.
The world can't wait.
