Simply to see our neightbours issues as our own.  To help each other in times of need and to recognise those who have not been afforded the same opportunities. In helping  and supporting others around us grow financially, politically, educationally and socially, ‘we’ as global citizens are evolving and thriving.  By insisting on equality, fairness and justice, ensuring  nations are not starving and have access to clean drinking water,  preventing war and genocide due to social and political unrest should be our duty. We must collectively take responsibility ensuring nations are safe.  Regretfully I am guity of witnessing atrocities throughoiut the world through the media. Other than feeling hugely appreciative of the ‘deck’ dealt to me,  I  know I don’t do enough to make a change in the lives of others, my fellow citizens.  I think this could spark an interesting debate within the classroom. I think encouraging children to care for each other within their class, school, community and country is a good start to enable them to recognise the importance of their own contributions and their effect on a global level.</span></p>
