  4. 4. Participates in a global society and understands one’s role as a global citizen On July 7, 2005, less than four months after my return from England, fifty-two people were killed and hundreds of others injured when terrorists deployed bombs in the underground subway system and on a bus in London… the busses and subway cars that I had been on only months before. I suddenly realized what it felt like to be connected to the world and what was happening in it; I also began to understand that I had previously felt somewhat disconnected from events that happened outside of my realm of experience, such as those happening internationally… the world seemed utterly interconnected as I had never felt that it was before…For me, this was a tremendous lesson in what it means to be a citizen of the world.
