I think you've got to listen to this. If you want chills up and down your arms while listening to Chris Berry and a huge chorus of young people singing "We've got rights!"
Photo left: Amnesty International's press conference for Joy Berry's new book, Mine and Yours: Human Rights For Children. Joy has authored and sold over 80 million copies of children's books and this is a project she did for Amnesty International. On Joy's right is Jennifer Connelly as they listen to the president of Amnesty introduce Joy. On Joy's left (not shown) is Mary Robinson, the former president of Ireland and the current head of human rights for the United Nations. Robbins told the crowd that "Mine and Yours" was the best book to be published since the one published by Eleanor Roosevelt. "It is truly an amazing work, one for which all of us should be thankful."

A bit of shameless self-promotion next: When I began the the LFC blog, Joy read my work and this is what she had to say.

"SEA,

WOW, WHAT AMAZING WEBSITES!! Waniso and Sekai got a kick out seeing their mommy and themselves on my computer!

Don't tell me that among the zillions of things you do well you also put together websites!!...The writing is insightful and impeccable.

Here are a couple more movies I would recommend you see if you have a chance ... (also sponsored by Amnesty International)...

Lord Of War
Innocent Voices
North Country

Meanwhile, KEEP SHINING THE LIGHT! IT'S A MEGAWATT LIGHT THAT'S SURE TO DO A LOT OF GOOD!

Love and hugs!

Joy"
