Human dignity originates from God and is of God because we are made in God’s own image and likeness. Human life is sacred because the human person is the most central and clearest reflection of God among us. Human beings have worth and value that comes from God; this dignity is not based on any human quality, individual merit or accomplishment. Human dignity is an essential part of every human being and is a quality that can never be separated from other essential aspects of a person. This student demonstrates qualities, such as respect and care for others. He is helpful to all and has a smile that can brighten anyone’s day. The 5th grade class is happy to recognize Adrian Romero for being a true example of what respect of human dignity is.
To show Respect for Human Dignity is to acknowledge the worth and value of every individual’s life. It’s the firm belief that every life matters regardless of the person’s social class, skin color, physical appearance, personal beliefs or religious beliefs. This student embraces the differences within each of her classmates and looks at each individual as a unique person with a distinct set of gifts. She is not afraid of differences, because she sees them as part of God’s plan. This student is the perfect example of what it means to be free from judgment.
