Liberation Day! Freedom Day! Celebration Day! Juneteenth! Celebrate and continue the struggle until all of the human race is free!

 
June 19, 1865, Galveston, Texas. Finally. two and one half years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation into law, the African Americans find out that they are now
free from being owned. They are no longer considered property under the law. It was, however, only two months after Robert E. Lee, in the name of the Confederacy, surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant, General Officer of the Union armies. The surrender took place at the Appomattox Court House in Virginia. It took that much time to arrive at the farthest reaches of the United States, as it then was, and spread the word. This is now a day of celebration, and its popularity is expanding. People are not to be owned. The establishing of this as law was paramount to the future. "The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free." , read General Orders No. 3, as it was voiced by US General Gordon Granger. Indeed, Jubilation Day!

On a broader scope, which still includes the United States of America, this concept needs to expand throughout all nations, everywhere. We are the human family. There is a basic truth, that all people are due basic rights because they are human. Just because we each are. We are here. We are alive. We are Human. There is a Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Have you read it? "Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream." L. Ron Hubbard, a renowned humanitarian and Philosopher stated. We are still working on it. youthforhumanrights.org
