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 she 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
As parents and caring adults in this world, it is our responsibility to do our best to provide caring and nurturing homes, schools and communities for our children. We need to support and extend compassion and kindness towards each other as we care for, teach and work with our children and youth in our communities. We need to be mindful of our own words and behavior. We must teach and model good social, emotional and coping skills. Perhaps most importantly, we must model kind, respectful, compassionate and caring attitudes and behavior towards themselves and others.
