AbstractOn the whole, humans today regard themselves as more interconnected with people all over the world. With this comes the question "How can I help?" resounding throughout society and the media. What can I do to make the world a better place? Whether it involves travelling to another country to construct shelters, or something as simple as donating money to people deprived of food or devastated by a natural disaster, people everywhere are recognizing their responsibility to the less fortunate people. This is one of the effects of globalization. As a loosely defined term coming after the Cold War and dramatically assisted by the influence of technological advancements, globalization is a newer mindset that favors global thinking outside of political boundaries. As Dr. Hans Schattle of Roger Williams University defines it, "Rather than emerging as a noun indicating fixed membership status or permanent transfers of authority and allegiance from the nation-state to the world, global citizenship now emerges as a verb, a concept of action signifying ways of thinking and living within multiple cross-cutting communities" (3).
