Ryan Holly Posted 8 months ago What does it mean to be globally aware and why is it important? I think part of being globally aware is striving your best to understand the world we live in. I think it is important because we often fear what we do not understand, and fear can lead to violent conflict. I do not think, however, that it means we should agree with everything we see in the world. I believe it is a matter of trying to put things into context, and considering several different viewpoints before reaching conclusions.
