In My Small Village.
Hays, Donald G.
This paper discusses the ideas of how to unite global villages to help create a better world. Argues that it takes just two people to begin a conversation between countries. It proposes that e-mail conversations can take place between children in classrooms in two different countries. Another benefit, besides breaking down the cultural barriers for these school children, would be to have those in developing countries correspond with those in more advanced countries in an attempt to travel the distance between the "have" and the "have-not" children of the world.
