Good News in History, December 10

70 years ago today, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, outlining basic human rights: The right to life, liberty and security of person; the right to participate fully in cultural life; Freedom from torture or cruel, inhumane treatment or punishment; Freedom of thought, conscience and religion Freedom of expression and opinion. President Reagan adopted Human Rights Day during a signing ceremony in 1986: “Today we renew our allegiance to those human rights which all free men cherish and which we Americans, in particular, hold so dear. It's love of freedom that binds a people who are so richly diverse. It unites us in purpose… that these human rights are the property of every man, woman, and child on this planet and that a violation of human rights anywhere is the business of free people everywhere. Those who suffer for freedom are not alone.” (1948)
