"Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world... All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."
- Universal Declaration of Human Rights [See complete text]
For far too many members of the human family extreme poverty, wars and violence, treatable disease and other solvable issues are a daily reality. 21 children die every minute due to preventable causes. 844 million of us live without access to clean, safe water. 795 million people go to bed hungry. 100 million people are homeless. These realities show us there is something terribly wrong in our world. For that reason, I am walking all 195 nations on Planet Earth for human rights.
