When the tsunami disaster occurred, the whole world felt the devastation. People from all over the world offered their support and sent money to help victims. Instead of saying that different parts of the world should deal with their own problems, everyone made other countries problems their own. This shared belief of safety and happiness brought people together for comfort and relief. Every culture can agree on such beliefs.
Another example of shared beliefs and values held by everyone is freedom. The United States is helping out citizens in Iran and Iraq to gain control of their own lives and live freely. Everyone is striving for independence and the ability to live their own lives.
Global culture is also emerging slowly in parts of the world. For example, Europe used to have different forms of money and now they have switched to one shared currency, the euro-dollar. Although there are many different form of money throughout the world, someday that might change.
Global culture is having a positive impact on the world. People from all different parts of the globe are working together for unity and peace. Everyone is more accepting of each other and has been working side by side to reach common goals. The idea that the world is shrinking its' differences and uniting, makes us stronger and more capable to accomplish anything. Hopefully global culture will continue to grow and become even more important than it is today.
