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

Many people tend to ignore information that they recognize as unrelated now. Hence, they could not imagine how to solve many current social problems or be unprepared if they could face similar problems in the future. In my view, knowing many issues could be an essential first step to grasping the current situations worldwide and preparing for our future. At first, constantly researching contemporary social issues worldwide could allow me to prepare for forthcoming events. Under globalization, many foreign cases could connect our lives, although we tend to judge them as irrelevant to our daily lives. For instance, the current war between Russia and Ukraine is deeply relevant to our lives, though many Japanese people considered it unrelated to themselves initially. They only thought these two countries were battling to resolve their territorial issues forcefully. As it has gone on, they started to face many economic problems caused by it, such as inflation and limited natural gas import by Russia, making them aware that they should have prepared to face unpredicted situations resulting from it. They would have responded to the war differently if they had had a habit of gathering daily global information that might be irrelevant to them; many Japanese companies could prevent inflation by expanding their importing chains for natural resources in advance. Indeed, knowing global issues could help us prepare for future unpredicted events. Moreover, learning about many events could aid us in solving many unrelated issues to ourselves. Noticing them could be essential to giving hands and making a better solution. For instance, taking a sociology course at the university encouraged me to engage in a volunteer activity to serve three meals to poor children in Japan. Before studying Japanese poverty in class, I did not care for them because I did not get troubled by eating healthy food daily. However, it let me know that many immigrant children in Japan skip meals because of their parents’ difficulty in having stable jobs. In addition, it motivated me to join a volunteer activity that supports children having healthy foods under 500 yens every day. As a result of the action, more children are no longer concerned about food and grow healthier. Thus, noticing issues that might not be relevant could help us enlarge our perspectives for assisting many people with trouble. In conclusion, we should research many current issues. If so, we are more likely to prepare for forthcoming events and help many people with trouble. If you now ignore information that might be unrelated to your daily life, I recommend you learn about it to treat it suitably and help many people out of their problems.
