Wenn wir nur 100 Menschen wären auf der Welt ...
Eine Freundin schrieb mir:

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:

  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 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 (yes, only 1) would have a college education

  1 would own a computer

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

 The following is also something to ponder...

  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 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.

  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.
