I've always said that during my travels, my theory coincides with truth. I've learned that we are a global community and we shouldn't think otherwise. I consider myself a global citizen. My neighbors aren't limited to the lines that separate our states or the waters that separate our countries. Rather, a fine line connects us together.
Especially during the influx of the technology era we're experiencing. We've witnessed parts of Egypt intertwine by social media in order to stand for their rights. And the whole world was watching, stirring awareness and emotions to fellow neighbors all over the world.
