American citizens need to be more aware of other nations
I would like to inform U.S. citizens about the outside world. Don't be shocked by this provoking letter. I am an international student, which gives me credit to discuss how most Americans' minds are too narrow from not knowing about the outside world. When I met some new "American friends," because I can speak English fluently, in the worst case, some Americans had never even heard about my country, which is one of the developing countries in Asia. I found it awkward that the citizens of a big country like the U.S. have limited information about the world. On the contrary, the citizens of my small country have ample resources about every part of the world. Do you guys think that your country is so superior that you didn't have to know about other people's cultures? There is much more interesting stuff that you probably never expected out there. The American education system should be improved by adding a geography subject from at least high school like people from other countries have. In spite of knowing only about your big country, you should make an effort to know about others in prominent countries such as Brunei, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, etc. It would be beneficial to you. So, open your mind! There is a lot more out there.
