Human Rights

On December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly passed into law the International Human Rights Principles to protect human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals or groups.

In 1995, on the 50th anniversary of that occasion, Maya Angelou was invited to address the United Nations Assembly in New York. In front of the US president and heads of states from all the world, Maya Angelou passionately read her poem, A Brave and Startling Truth. It spoke volumes then as it does now. Travel back 24 years and listen….hmmm. We still have a long way to go.

In the words of the Persian poet, Rumi, life is a balance of letting go and holding on. If you  have been thinking about the general direction of your life and think more balance is in order, perhaps we could chat. Text/call me 416.450.8867 or email drew@drewsimmie.com. Follow me on Twitter.
