During my time in London, I had the chance to see several memorials and statues. Some of them were planned ,such as the Queen Victoria Memorial just outside of Buckingham Palace, but several of them I came across while I was exploring London. September 11 was a day many of us from the United States will never forget, but I had no idea they created a memorial anywhere else in the world. It was an eye-opening experience to see what it means to live in a global community.

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.
