"No man is an island" wrote John Donne, the famous British writer and poet who died in 1630. He espoused the notion that man needs to know his neighbors and his world.He lived nearly 4 centuries ago!!! To be a global citizen ,we need to know about the world we live in and understand its diversity and its similarities. I have been to many countries and hope to go to many more but that is the message I want you take from my class, that we need to know all we can about the citizens of our world not just our community.
