A Note from the WYA President

Dear WYA Member,

Visible signs of need, suffering and injustice expose the universal human condition of vulnerability.
We, as young people, commit ourselves in solidarity at this time to all those who live in need, experience the hardship of disease or social unrest, and who suffer the poverty of hopelessness. 

The intrinsic dignity of each person is the foundation of all just human interactions and we encourage our members and friends to deepen their awareness of the need for solidarity at this time.

Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do a particular job. It lies with each of us individually. Peace, for example, starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us…

-H.H. The Dalai Lama, Our Global Family, Chapter 3.

Individual autonomy, however important it may be, is always limited by the protection of the fundamental goods of society. One such good is the life of a human being, which should be always protected…Read our white paper on vulnerable populations and international pressure for euthanasia, here.
