Be "HUMAN" first

Don't hurt them
Don't beat them
Don't hate them
Don't harm them
Don't judge them
Don't taunt them
Don't blame them
Don't avoid them
Don't neglect them
Don't abuse them
Don't criticize them
Don't ignore them
Don't torture them
Don't humiliate them
Don't disrespect them
Don't think ill of them
Don't be harsh on them
Don't wish bad for them
Don't discriminate against them

The old
The sad
The poor
The needy
The ailing
The orphans
The faceless
The helpless
The diseased
The different
The nameless
The homeless
The depressed
The powerless
The minorities
The weaker sex
The less fortunate
The differently-able

BE HUMAN first
The RIGHTS will FOLLOW

It starts with YOU!
