I have a right to laugh and be happy,
Express my ideas and feelings freely,
Nobody has a right to laugh at me and
hurt my feelings.
I have a right to be respected as a person,
No matter how I look,
Whether I am a boy or a girl,
I deserve to be treated fairly.
I have a right to be safe.
Nobody has a right to hit, kick, push,
or try to touch me in a way that
makes me feel uncomfortable.
I have a right to say NO,
Either to a young person or an adult
when I am asked to do something that
is dangerous or wrong, or simply
does not seem right to me,
I am able to say NO.
I have a right to ask questions and learn.
I have a right to follow my dreams.
I have a right to be proud of the
things I do well, proud of myself.
