"Where, after all, do universal rights begin? In small places, close
to home—so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of
the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the
neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the
factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the places where
every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity,
equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning
there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerned citizen
action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for
progress in the larger world."
–Eleanor Roosevelt, “The Great Question,” remarks delivered at the
United Nations in New York on March 27, 1958.
Human rights begin in small places, close to home become it is where
one sees the clearest and his heart feels the deepest.
