If we could shrink the earth's population to avillage of precisely 100 people, with all the existinghuman ratios remaining the same, it would looksomething like the following.
There would be:
14 from the Western Hemisphere,both north and south
8 would be Africans
52 would be female48 would be male
30 would be white70 would be non-white
70 would be non-Christian30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealthand all 6 would be from the USA.
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
1 would be near death
1 would be near birth
1 (yes, only 1) would havea college education
1 (yes, only1) would own computer.
When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective,we realize the need for acceptance, understanding and education.
If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roofoverhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, youare more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change ina dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
If you can attend a religious meeting without fear of harassment,arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed thanthree billion people in the world.
If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness ofimprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation,you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.
If you can read this message you are more blessed than the overtwo billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
As you read this and are reminded how lifeis in the rest of the world, rememberjust how blessed you really are!
