Every human being should be seen as having equal dignity and equal worth – simply by virtue of their humanity. We are all part of the same species and the same long story, it is possible to feel a connection with all people, everywhere. We can imagine ourselves in their position. I know that what happens to them, could happen to me. All human beings should have the right to dignity and to our concern. Empathy is strengthened by recognizing and guaranteeing human rights. History has shown us that this is the best way to create more peaceful societies for everyone.
