This is historic. Never in my younger years did I ever imagine that I would live to hear such a speech.
Eleanor Roosevelt of fond memory with what may be her greatest accomplishment. This document was belittled and ignored all through the Cold War, but now seems to be coming into its own as a major historical watershed.
Someone else who richly deserves credit for the UN Human Rights Declaration, Dag Hamarskjöld, who would have been particularly gratified by today's speech.
And this speech is a culmination of a long hard journey that began with these folks in 1969.
