When I was kid, there was a globe that sat on the small desk in the back of my bedroom. Maybe you’ve seen one like it? All the oceans were a light shade of periwinkle blue and the continents were all different colors, every hue of the rainbow, each country a different shade from its surrounding neighbor nation. I would often sit on the floor with my globe, looking at the beautifully colored countries and I would read their exotic names.

I would slowly open my eyes, lift my finger, and read the name: “India.” “Egypt.” “Thailand.” “Kenya.” “Russia.” “Australia.” “Nigeria.” “China.” I would daydream about all the people around the world living their lives, so many millions and millions of people. Just think about all those people out there.
