We are living in a globalizing world. But our society does not place enough emphasis on understanding the world beyond America. What life offers beyond Rihanna and Lady Gaga, beyond clubbing and sex and commercials of fast food franchises and lose-weight pills is not just poverty in Africa, or HIV/AIDS in developing countries. The world is catching up. Besides the recent collapse of a totalitarian government in Egypt, youth from all other nations are also in tune with the age of technology, with projects helping their communities and with an improving education balancing both academics and sports. They travel, learn foreign languages, and read more on fascinating cultures of people around the world. After all, even the American society cannot be summed up in those commercials, TV shows and pop cultures. So step out of the media box and you will start to see the world in a better light.
