Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? It is important to know about events happening around the world, even if it is unlikely that they will affect your daily life. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Frankly speaking, this is a controversial question. News and events are an essential part of our lives and knowing what is happening around the world is important even if it has no impact on us. Each country's daily basis is different but the situation and humanity are values that need to be considered in this case.In this century every day,we listen to the horrible news that affects our lives in a bad way. Covid, wars, attacking this news affected every human being life quality. I strongly believe that people need to share what is happening on earth to spare awareness and find solutions to correct everything. I will provide relevant and realistic examples based on my own experience that demonstrate this point. First of all, I feel that every human is free to choose what to listen to and what to believe, but in this situation every day we listen to an abundant amount of horrible things that happen on a daily basis. For instance, back in 2019 when covid started nobody really cared and believed that it is real unless it reached the point when nobody could control its spreading. This virus changed everybody's life in a horrible way. We were stuck in a lockdown for more than a year and the news was the only option for us to know what will happen next. Secondly, I think that caring for each other is what makes us human and creature that differs from animals. We need to take care of our nature. We live here, and taking care of our planet is our responsibility. Moreover, I agree with this argument, because news can inform us what is happening around us, and this will lead to helping each other and finding solutions and ways to overcome this problem. I can also bring an example of a terrible accident that happened in Texas when a young kid murdered more than 10 students in their school. I am so far away from them, but this horrible accident broke my heart. I shared this news with everyone on social media so the government can find any possible ways to stop this kind of sin in the future. In conclusion, my provided examples are one of the best instances for this argument. Hence, sharing and being aware of what is happening in the world is a crucial part of our life.
