关于人权--埃莉诺·罗斯福 @ 5/8/2010

“普世的人权究竟是从哪里开始的呢?在小地方,离你的家很近——那么近,那么小,世界上没有一张地图找得到。它就在每个人自己的世界,在他每天生活的社区,他每天上课的学校,他每天劳动的工厂、菜园或办公室。在这些地方,每一个男人、女人和小孩寻求着公平正义,平等机会和不受歧视的同等尊严。唯有这些权利能在这些小地方得到落实,我们才能说这些权利是有意义的。如果没有公民们以同心协力的行动从自家附近的小地方开始坚持这些权利,我们将不可能在更大的世界中看到它们有所进展。”

“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 he 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.”

跳舞,像没有人注视一样
唱歌,像无人聆听一样
热恋,像从未受过伤
活着,即把人间当做天堂
