This course talks about safeguarding oneâ€™s rights as human. For example: the right to be healthy; the right to be happy; the right to be treated well.Â These rights are sometimes abused or neglected by others, thus, you should know when a person crosses that boundary.
Everyone, regardless of their age, sexuality, race, religion, ethnicity, or profession has the right to be respected by others, to have a healthy lifestyle, and to be happy.Â Every human being deserves the right to be similarly treated by others, and one must always bear in mind that we are all equals. No person has more human rights than the other. In order to value the rights of others, one must learn to empathize and respect, he must put himself in anotherâ€™s shoes, and ask himself, â€œDo I want to feel this?â€ or â€œDo I want to be treated this way?â€ We all have the right to be free from discrimination against who we are, what we are, or what we do.
