Internet plays a big part in how the world has turned into a global village. The crisis in Syria, the refugee situation, ISIS attacks, and racial violence – we are just a few clicks away of reading and seeing what is going on. Literally a few clicks away, because just as easy as we can access this news, we can also go back to our normal, often safe, lives again.
