    LOWENTHAL asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. LOWENTHAL. Mr. Speaker, today I rise to celebrate Human Rights Day, the anniversary of the proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was signed in 1948. Today is the 67th anniversary of that, as I just indicated.

    I also just introduced a resolution recognizing this anniversary and supporting the ideals of human rights. I am pleased to have the support already of 37 of my colleagues as cosponsors of this resolution recognizing Human Rights Day.

    I believe we should take this opportunity to pause and to honor all those [[Page H9266]] struggling across the globe to claim the fundamental rights and freedoms that belong to all human beings.

    Mr. Speaker, I urge the House to take up my resolution and set aside today to recognize Human Rights Day.
