“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”
– John F. Kennedy
When was the last time you had to fight for something you were entitled to? It could be every single day of your life – for the last cookie in the batch, for the amount of allowance you get each week. It is almost ingrained into human nature for us to speak up about an issue if we see that things aren’t going our way and if deemed reasonable and negotiations made, those issues could be resolved. However, if I were to rephrase my question slightly, everything might be different: when was the last time you had to fight for a right that you were entitled to as a human being? For many of us, the answer would probably be never. We live in such a privileged society today that we don’t have to struggle with such issues in our daily life but at the same time, we need to be aware that there are many in the world today that do.
