“Human Rights and the Well-Being of the Humanity”
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) concerns the fact that human beings came together and agreed that each individual must be treated with respect, accorded with due consideration and protection and allowed to benefit from living one’s life in “the best possible way.” The human beings here involved people at a worldwide level, the United Nations. In this regard, nations in the world had reached an agreement and had decided to lay down rules and regulations so that each individual can resort to as a legitimate claim, so as to ensure and to serve as standards for one’s well-being and to have access to virtue and all benefits to which one is entitled.
Keeping this in mind, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a matter of civilized and cultured human beings who care and have kind consideration for one another. The UDHR reflects recognition of the importance of rules and regulations so as to enable human beings to live together in harmony. In this sense, the UDHR stands as a symbol of progresses of civilizations.
