In honor of Monday’s Martin Luther King, Jr. day, this week’s WTRW is focused squarely on human rights.
Human rights: Moral principles or norms that describe certain standards of human behavior and are regularly protected as legal rights in municipal and international law. Commonly understood an inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because he or she is a human being, and which are inherent in all human beings regardless of their nation, location, language, religion, ethnic origin, or any other status. Applicable everywhere and at every time in the sense of being universal, and they are egalitarian in the sense of being the same for everyone. –Wikipedia.org
We aim to keep our home library diverse, in order to raise compassionate kiddos who will hopefully one day be kind and courageous fully grown members of society. I believe people from every tribe, nation, and tongue are made in God’s image, and by learning about & celebrating cultures other than ours we learn more about our multi-faceted Creator. The following books embody that same spirit and/or celebrate those who have fought for that same cause.
I also dig this list of inspiring/thought provoking films that Kristin Howerton shared on MLK day.
