September 28, 1948: Eleanor Speaks in Favor of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
On this day in 1948, United Nations delegate and former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt delivered a speech in Paris entitled, “The Struggle for Human Rights.” Her goal was to create a sense of unity among nations through the common principles of the Declaration, a document that she helped draft and approve. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was approved by the UN General Assembly that December.

What the fuck, you’re horrid. You dare to use “unconditional” to guilt trip me? Please, I wasn’t born yesterday.
I’m fucking mad at you, yea? Even when things weren’t bad with henry, you never bothered with me. Funnily enough the only time you wanted to spend time was when your boyfriend had to do his essay. And fine, so I wanted to be there for you. We made plans! I went all the way there for you. Babe you never cared for me, you don’t respect my time or effort.
You want to talk about unconditional? How about caring about the basic stuff that friends do, like not fucking bailing out last minute? How dare you say that I cared less than I thought I did? No fucking wonder you don’t have any girl friends that you can rely on? People are not pawns, or things you use when you need. People have feelings. Fuck if I didn’t care, I wouldn’t have offered to go to yours and spend time when your guy was busy!
That’s whats wrong with you, you’re always about take take take take, you’ve NEVER spared a thought for anyone but YOU! I’m so fucking mad at you, my god! Really, why would anyone want a friend who doesn’t care or treat you like a friend should?
You dare to use the word “unconditional” and say that I could just let go of everything we’ve done? You gave me nothing to miss.
What the hell lady. Is this how you’ve been taught to treat a friend? I don’t recall having ever asked you for anything, but this time is a bit too much. You behave as if you’ve never been taught to think for the people around you. You’ve never bothered taking the bus to mine, have you? You’ve never bothered to come out without your boyfriend, you’ve actually never bothered to anything. I mean I know most girls get carried away at that age, but this, really? It’s not pleasant to be on the receiving end of your lack of ability to care for the wellbeing of others. Pretty sure I have many faults too, but I damn well don’t do that to any friend of mine. Do you know how long the waiting times for buses are? 45 minutes, and today it was lucky the weather was only cold. It’s dark out there too! This place isn’t familiar to me at all and for some reasons, it doesn’t feel very safe when the night falls and there are no street lights. The bus, oh the bus took such a long time to come. But I bothered. And if you don’t learn to treat your friends decently, then you don’t deserve my time, effort or company.
I’m really put off this time, yea?
