HHDL (with slight editing)

         60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948–2008). 

"This declaration affirms that all human beings have the right to freedom from want and freedom from fear. These human rights are inclusive, interdependent and universal.

Whether we are concerned with suffering born of poverty, with denial of freedom, with armed conflict, or with a reckless attitude to the natural environment everywhere, we should not view these events in isolation. Eventually their repercussions are felt by all...[a need for] effective international action to address these global issues from the perspective of the oneness of humanity...a profound understanding of the...interconnected nature of [the] world.

At birth, all human beings are naturally endowed with the qualities we need for our survival, such as caring, nurturing and loving kindness.  However, despite already possessing such positive qualities, we tend to neglect them.

Comment from JS: We have love; but we neglect it....
