What does it mean to be a good citizen?
Being a good citizen means thinking about how my action or inaction could benefit or hurt people I don’t know personally — people who live somewhere else, live in the past, or don’t yet exist. A good citizen prioritizes our interconnectedness over individualism.
Trying to expand our knowledge and understanding is also vital. No one will ever know everything, and we’ll always make mistakes no matter how old we are. I’m 56 and feel I will always be learning (and making mistakes).
