SGI Quarterly: What can ordinary people do in order to help make a culture of human rights a reality?
DT: [Desmond Tutu] There are no ordinary people--every one of us is a very special person because we are each created in the image of God and so of infinite worth. Each one of us should stand up for human rights. It is ultimately only when human rights prevail that the vulnerable will be safe. Rights have, on their obverse side, responsibilities and obligations. My right to my own opinion involves my being tolerant of the different views of others. Someone said, "My right to stretch my arm ends where your nose begins."
