Some cite human rights when they refuse to take the vaccine or wear a mask.
For me, human responsibility is equally important.
I chose to take the vaccine and wear a mask because I want to protect others. I want us all to move through the pandemic as fast as possible. I want to be part of our collective solution and not contribute to the problem.
That’s my human responsibility.
Also, human rights are not just for me. Other people have their own human rights. They have the right to expect me to do my part. They have the right to expect me to take the vaccine, wear a mask, and do whatever else I can to protect them.
The question is: Do I value the human rights of others as much as my own? Do I value my human responsibilities as much as I value my human rights?
