Our Despedida (Melanie)

Here we are, the superstar Human Rights Delegates, on our last night in Guatemala (ANTIGUA)

Practicing salsa in the restaurant while we were waiting for our food. We had to move the tables out of the way.

Dancing to trance, hiphop and salsa in the club...

...while Carlos and Melanie stood guard making sure everyone was safe and having fun.

Thank you to Collin, Patrick, Zach, Cindy, Jeremiah, Zoe, Candice, Nat and Tiye. Ever since I lived in Guatemala, I dreamt of organizing a Human Rights Delegation. You guys are a part of this dream come true. Like I told you in our closing circle at the airport, I hope that our delegation ignited a fire in you to continue exploring human rights issues both in your communities and abroad. May Guatemala be the first of many experiences that raise your awareness of OUR UNIVERSAL HUMAN RIGHTS.

It has long been recognized that an essential element in protecting human rights was a widespread knowledge among the population of what their rights are and how they can be defended.
Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Sixth UN Secretary-General, 1992-1996
