Thinking Globally

It has offically been almost two weeks since I've been back. It has been an amazing experience and I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to become part of two societies. I have been trying to keep up on information from London since I have been back. I started following some facebook groups that are related to London and it is amazing looking at information and being able to relate to it on some level. I can look at other peoples pictures and think, "I've been there" or "I stood there." I can even read articles and think about my own experiences that can relate back to my experiences I had in London. It really is like being a global citizen. You look at the world differently and you notice differences in the culture, the people, and even the beliefs. Even as I watch my own favorite television show I think about all of the gun use and the knife use. When I watch it I think about how different the use and of guns and knife are here in the United States. It is great being able to look at the world from different points of view and knowing that there is no right way to run a country or to live. There are many choices and paths that people make which can all be good choices. Just because someone lives differently does not mean they are wrong. I think we all have the choice to decide how we want to live and maybe even move to a place that has similar beliefs as you do. All I know is that it is amazing being able to look at the world and try to see things from their point of view. Taking into consideration their past and their personal beliefs to see through their eyes and understand why they do what they do even if you don't believe in it. Since this trip I really have begun thinking globally and been able to see the world through a new perspective.
