All the worlds population

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

72 would be non-Christian

28 would be Christian

89 would be heterosexual

11 would be homosexual

6 people would possess 59% 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 would have a college education

1 (yes only 1) would own a computer

  • 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 starvation ... you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.

  • If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death...you 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 sleep... you are richer than 75% of this world.

  • 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 people.

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

  • If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

When one considers our world from such a compressed

perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding and

education becomes glaringly apparent.

Work like you don't need the money.

Love like you've never been hurt.

Sing like nobody's listening.

Live like it's Heaven on Earth.
