Citizenship

1 – As human beings, we are used to living under laws and patterns that are dictated to us by society. But Following those patterns does not make us good citizens.

When joining all these aspects together You will find out that nothing else is needed.

2 – One important aspect for being a good citizen is to help people all around us, we can see there are always people in need for our help. Our job as good citizens is to help those kinds of people. When talking about the people that need our help, one should not only talk about the poor ones, but also about the pregnant woman who cannot carry a heavy package or the old man who cannot cross the street. Remember that little actions make the difference.
