If We Could Shrink The Earth's Population To A Village Of Precisely 100 People, With All The Existing Human Ratios Remaining The Same, It Would Look Something Like The Following. There Would Be: 57 Asians 21 Europeans 14 From The Western Hemisphere, Both The North & South 8 Would Be Africans 52 Would Female 48 Would Be Male 30 Would Be White 70 Would Be Non-White 70 Would Be Non-Christian 30 Would Be Christian 89 Would Be Heterosexual 11 Would Be Homosexual 6 People Would Possess 59% Of The Entire World's Wealth And All Six 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 Have A College Education 1 (yes, only 1) Would Own A Computer And Therefore: If You Have Food In The Refrigerator, Clothes On Your Back, A Roof Overhead And A Place To Sleep, You Are Richer Than 75% Of This World. If You Woke Up This Morning With More Health Than Illness, You Are More Blessed Than The Million Who Will Not Survive The Week. If You Have Money In The Bank, In Your Wallet, And Spare Change In A Dish Someplace, You Are Among The Top 8% Of The World's Wealthy. If Yo Can Attend A Church Meeting Without Fear Of Harassment, Arrest, Torture, Or Death, You Are More Blessed Than 3 Billion People In This World. If You Have Never Experienced The Danger Of Battle, The Loneliness Of Imprisonment, 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, Consider Yourself More Blessed Than The Over 2 Billion People In The World Who Cannot Read At All. As You Read This and Are Reminded Of How Life Is In The Rest Of The World, Remember Just How Blessed You Really Are. When One Considers Our World From Such A Compressed Perspective, We Should Realize The Need For Acceptance, Understanding And Education.
