Ten years ago this month, London experienced an attack similar to 9/11 in the United States. Until I studied abroad in London, I had not heard of the attacks. Studying abroad helped me not only learn more about London’s history, but becoming a global citizen. Since returning to the United States, I have paid more attention to world events and the effects they can have across multiple countries. Taking the time to learn about events, such as the attacks, can help give you a better understanding of the people and the culture.
