Salutation #154

(Human Rights)

Human rights - are those - 
inalienable and universal legal protections 
granted all human individuals 
that are derived 
from the manifest necessities 
that arise from the fundamental nature
of all human beings.

envelop human dignity 
- and - 
embrace human promise 
- and - 
constantly seek
- to do so -
each in their entirety.

In principle, 
these protections are directed 
toward defending our basic vulnerabilities 
and promoting our fundamental responsibilities 
to each other as human beings cognizant of our humanity
and are laws purposed together
by all nations for the benefit of all nations
to recognize, foster, and preserve
human life, liberty, responsibility, posterity, and destiny 
each in their most evolved
and universal sense.
