In my last post I put out a challenge to ask what you are doing to change the world in your home, at work, within your community and for the world. The first of this series is based on Humanity.
December 10 celebrates human rights day. Human rights surpasses religion and is about recognizing “dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family”.
The challenge is to stop, take a close look at how you, as an individual, can make a difference in the world starting at home, at work, in your community and then looking around at your contribution to the world. Add your changes to the others!
Here are just a few of the responses I have received so far:
> I work as an educator in addition to my “day job”.
I also serve on community non-profit boards and committees to advance art in the region.
Volunteer my time to various shelters
Donate money to charities
Pray every day for peace on earth
> Home: I am changing my cooking schedules to accommodate my university son’s exams
Work: I am volunteering my time and efforts for students needing decorating expertise on their formal dance.
Community: Sit on one Board of Directors and on the event committee with the Chamber of Commerce.
World: I am working hard at being more energy conscious and efficient.
In the spirit of understanding what Human Rights are, please consider reading The Universal Declaration of Human Rights created by the United Nations.
Take on the challenge and share as many as you possibly can this week.
Stop back next week to hear more about what others are doing to change the world and find out what the next challenge is.
Peace and good will to all.
