Change takes place on daily basis, and whenever this happens, people’s lives are affected one way or the other. Right from our mothers’ wombs, we are all affected by the word “change.” As a result of this change, the world is growing into a huge family with all the people in different countries, knowing about, sharing and caring for one another. This occurs as a result of people copying what they see others do, especially when they watch television and films. Human beings learn new things from the radio, especially from news reports and stories. They also learn by travelling to other lands to see how the people there live. They imitate what they read in books, magazines and newspapers about other countries that they think are more developed than them.
