Sixty years is a long time.
And it’s strange to think that while in some ways we have come so far, in others we still have so far to go. But this coming week marks the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Signed in Paris six decades ago, this document is intended to foster, promote and spread a simple but crucial practice — that every human, regardless of race, creed, religion should be granted the right to live in peace and dignity.
I’ve come to Paris this week to participate in Loic Le Meur’s LeWeb 2008 conference, and tonight have the honor of attending an event to celebrate the anniversary of this important document.
At a time when the world is in such a battered and bruised state, efforts such as this, which are designed to help mend the fractures plaguing society, are all the more important.
