I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!

I would say a gross violation of human rights. Obviously this is very touchy territory since different people will have different interpretations of that phrase, but in a very broad sense, I think that any time human rights are being trampled (for example, through genocide) there is a moral obligation to interfere. Sadly, most countries seem more eager to use their military might to fight over money than the well-being of their people.
