Do you know your rights?

In general I would say that the American people are unaware of their rights. I’m posting this so that you can refresh yourself and feel confident when discussing personal and national issues. Of course each state has its own laws, so look into those as well. Familiarize yourself with our Constitution, and all of its amendments. 

Did you know that in 1948 the United Nations wrote the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These are meant to protect all of the people on Earth. Every time I read them, I wonder how many other people know that they exist, have read them and would like all of Earth’s people to live by these laws.

Teachers and parents, let’s make sure our children know their rights.  Thank you – Zoe
