Video #1 - This short video depicts the space debris population of various sizes.
Video #2 - Details a real world case study for an unlucky large satellite operator:

The NASA Orbital Debris Program Office further states the danger of small space debris:
This framework describes the purpose of each STM objective. While Active Debris Removal is the focus of OrbitGuardians, any STM service provider can leverage the STM Act of 2022 to acquire funding from their tax paying contributors to accomplish their STM objective (see below).
Contributions then used for identifying orbital carrying capacity, space traffic footprint, risk assessments, prioritizations, policy, space situational awareness, mitigation, and active debris removal.
These files were provided to various members of the U.S. House of Representatives in order to push the Bill "Space Debris Act of 2021" toward the U.S. Senate and ultimately across POTUS's desk for signature to enact a tax credit for financial contributors within the Space Traffic Management umbrella of services.
19% of tracked space objects threaten GPS and other GNSS satellites. While there are many fewer objects in MEO than in LEO, the risk in the former is arguably greater because GPS is so critical to almost all of our technology. Article covers background, false sense of security, and a proactive solution.
