Place Where You Live:

Planet Earth

 People are always trying to find a unique place to call their own in this world.  As I have grown up, I have traveled all over the world.  Each of the places that I have been too has shaped a little bit of who I am.  It is because of my travels that I consider myself a citizen of earth rather than a citizen of the United States.  When I see other cultures, I look for and compare their differences and similarities to the culture in which I was brought up.  These differences and similarities can help change us to be better or keep us divided.  In my life I have to evolve in order to be a better person, and I feel this has to happen on a larger scale with where our planet is with global conflict.  If a global evolution does not happen, then my place may be in danger of drastic and uncontrollable changes.  Humans, more than any other animal, have impacted our planet in ways natural selection and evolution could not achieve.  There are permanent scars from our actions, such as mountain top removal mining and deforestation are just a few examples of how we are permanently destroying areas of our planet.  These areas of human impact are just as important to our culture as a global society as are the areas that are still wild.  We will have a greater impact on our planet when we act together as a whole global society rather than proclaiming our differences.  History should be our knowledge for the future, as history has shown us what is possible when people unite to act, as well as what happens when we create cultural divisions.  Change is possible and we can facilitate that change for humanity down a road to global prosperity by taking care of what we have.  I am a citizen of earth, and I challenge the people I meet to be the same.  We are stronger as one people, and we can make global impact if people are willing to change.
