We are in a global village
All the people live together, so we are all close to each other. This expression is also similar to another one “The World is small”. It is used when we meet somebody in another country or when your boss on your new job appears to be your cousin sister’s husband. It means that we all live very close to each other and should try to help each other. All people are different, but at the same time we are all people, and this fact must unite us.
Jacques Delors “But how can we learn to live together in the “global village” if we cannot manage to live together in the communities to which we naturally belong: the nation, the region, the city, the village, the neighbourhood? Do we want to make a contribution to public life and can we do so?”
All people, all races and nations on our planet must live in peace. But Jacques Delors thinks that we are not able to do that yet. So we must learn to live together, because every person is a part of the “global village”.
Why should we live in peace? Every conflict brings only negative feelings and actions in our life. Should we quarrel in situations when we can avoid it? We must do everything we can live in peace, because wars and conflicts can only ruin our life or destroy our health. All the people are absolutely different and all conflicts happen because of this fact. So, we should always try to understand other people , even if it seems to us that they are not right.
To cooperate and to live in peace in today’s multicultural Global Village, we have to learn and understand each other to escape culture conflicts and shocks when meeting.
It’s nearly always possible to avoid a conflict, if somebody wants to do it. When we try to understand another person, we should imagine ourselves in his place. This method can really help us to avoid a conflict.
