Knowledge of Geography
is essential in understanding the world around us. Geography helps understand history
, politics, evolution. It shouldn't be considered much to know the countries that border you own, or know approximately how many countries there are in the world, knowing which continent borders with which. Understanding geography puts everything in its proper perspective. We realize our true position in the world, our relative importance and the importance of others. If we go further and start looking into ethnology and sociology
, things get even more interesting, and the more we know, the more we understand. And people who truly understand a lot, are the people that are willing to accept differences among people, among opinions, among points of view.
...may the whole world be home to you!
