  • It's a Small World After All

    Came across this interesting article and just thought it would be interesting to post it here.

    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 north and south;
    8 Africans;

    52 would be female;
    48 would be male;

    70 would be non-white;
    30 would be white;

    70 would be non-Christian;
    30 would be Christian;

    89 would be heterosexual;
    11 would be homosexual;

    6 people would possess 58% of the entire world's wealth and all 6 would be from the United States;

    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.

    When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding and education become glaringly apparent.

    -If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will not survive this week.

    -If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

    - If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or are more blessed than three billion people in the world.

    - If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to are richer than 75% of this world.

    - If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

    - If your parents are still alive and still are very rare, even in the United States and Canada.

    - If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.

    Quite profound isn't it?
