Article 13: Right to Free Movement In and Out of the Country

Article 13 is described as: (1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each State, (2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.

People have the right to come and go from this country as they please.  Many come to this country in hopes of a better future than what they had in their original home.  These people should be allowed to be given the opportunity to come into this country and given a chance.  The same goes for if someone wants to leave the United States in hopes to see more of the world or even if they themselves do not feel comfortable here anymore.

To me, what best represents travel around the world is a passport.  When you travel with a passport, it will get stamped so I used that idea to stamp onto the cover of a passport the freedom that the citizens have.
