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.

One of the worst parts of this war is watching the kids react. If they’re lucky, they grow up thinking the galaxy is basically a decent place. Some rough spots here and there, but for the most part, life makes sense.
Now they find out it was all a lie. They wake up to see these things in the dark that just want to destroy everyone they ever cared about.
If they survive, there will be a lot of angry orphans out there looking for answers…
