Today, I want to talk about international Human Rights Day. Human Rights Day is celebrated annually across the world on December 10. This date was chosen to honor the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption and proclamation, on December 10, 1948, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the first global enunciation of human rights.

This is one of the most widely celebrated days internationally and it is on this day that the five-yearly United Nations Prizes in the Field of Human Rights and the Nobel Peace Prizes are traditionally awarded. The theme for 2015 is "Our Rights, Our Freedoms, Always.” - Information courtesy of sources found via Wikipedia
