This is the 70th anniversary of the United Nations adopting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and today, Madeline brought that to our attention because one of our principles is the inherent worth and dignity of every person. This is important because it is Article 14 of the declaration of human rights that says a country has to accept refugees. Each country can determine whether the refugees are really refugees after they are in, but you have to let refugees in and then make that determination. You can see how this has relevance today.
It is good to remember that WWII has just ended and there were a lot of refugees in the world. The Nuremberg trials were happening. In addition, China was in the middle of a civil war. Today's world is very very calm by comparison.
Come visit us on a Sunday and participate in a discussion like this (It always turns into a discussion around here.)
