World News Events: How do they (or should they) affect you?
There is an old saying which states, "Out of sight, out of mind," to indicate that those things that we can't readily see are often far away from us in mind. This could be true of new stories around the world; however, that said, if we really look of the events that even take place in distant lands, they tend to have a ripple effect in our lives---events that still touch our lives directly or indirectly.
What current event stories are taking place today, either in your country or in distant lands, that do or should make us reflect or even take action for the betterment of yourself or others?
