We Are All In This Together

In This Together
The world, as we know it, is so interconnected. We may have different backgrounds, languages, cultures, etc, but we are all human, and I think that is such a beautiful thing. So far, I have made many friends from many different countries and have realized that the differences between us all are just on the surface, and we are all so similar deep down inside. We all feel the same emotions, want similar things, and act relatively alike. Take a little time out of your day to just sit and observe others and you will see how truly alike we all are.

This brings me to the activity I participated in today: a protest march! Today, in Dublin, I marched alongside thousands of Irish students to fight against the introduction of the loan scheme system. This was my first ever protest, and I loved it! If you feel strongly about something, whatever it is, fight for it! We have loans for university students in the U.S. and many graduates are drowning in debt. There is not much I can do about our system, and that is alright, but I knew I could possibly make a difference for my fellow Irish mates.

Don’t ever pass up an opportunity to help your fellow man (or woman) if they need it. Love and

understanding is always the best policy! And always remember that we are all in this together!

-Cheers, friends, and sending lots of love from “across the pond”!
