Day 3: Thanksgiving!
On Thanksgiving we have passed 600 signatures on our petition to print the UDHR in passports! As a little thank you, I have asked our last 3 petitioners before #600 to tell us a little bit about themselves, and the reason for which they have signed! Number 599 did not write back yet, but Mitsi McKee and Matt Haltom did.
Thank you both very much for sending a few words for our One Day for Human Rights, and for your support!
I am part….mom, liberal, volunteer, nerd, friend, neighbor, dreamer, armchair philosopher, artist, and serial optimist.
I signed the petition because I think character means doing the right thing — even when no-one is watching.
If i could only impart only ONE thing to my sons throughout their lives it would that we are all humans, and as such….deserving of equal amounts of respect. No matter what!

I am a graphic and web designer in Boulder Colorado. I wouldn’t say I’m an activist in any sense, and most of the time my opinions are very two sided.
After hearing about One Day for Human Rights on Twitter, I checked it out. Taking in everything, any decent person can assume that things like torture, slavery and oppression are wrong. Even in our crazy changing world, politics seems to rain supreme sometimes.
My hope is that in signing the petition, lawmakers and leaders around the world might take note. Perhaps one day people everywhere can agree on one thing, our rights as humans.

I think it’s great to get to hear the reasoning behind these signatures…what makes people stand for human rights and support the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These are just 2 examples, but I will definitely ask more people. Maybe you can LEAVE A COMMENT with what motivated YOU to sign the petition!
And now the third day stats real quick:
- 52 more followers on Twitter – total number of followers: 498 :) Thank you all for your interest and support!
