These past few years, I have grown and become more aware of the injustice and cruelty occurring around the world. My school I feel is  a pretty liberal school that takes to heart the messages of community and awareness, and activism. Yet on a day so special not one event occurred today, not one person I knew mentioned the importance of today. We have come so far as human beings (even while we still have a ways to go) I was disappointed today that there was not communication of Human Rights.

I take Psychology and Peace studies courses at school and even in my Difficult Dialogues course there was not even a recognition of today's meaning. Now while on one hand I understand that holidays really dont mean anything because we should remember and think about Human Rights everyday. I get that perspective. Yet the way I have come to see it  with world and its citizens moving at such a fast past, and American culture the aspect of the INDIVIDUAL, makes it "difficult" for someone to think of others everyday. Therefore having special day to Remind us all to stop and think is important. I just really wish I encountered more people that had Today in mind and how wonderful it would have been to dialogue about.

Alas its another day. And while others continue with their everyday activities, I am trying for my own choices to stop and think everyday and to be aware of all the impacts I can make. Life is all about choices and you can make a choice in seconds and that which can change your reality is powerful.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
