Summary of the World:

If we could shrink the Earth population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratio's remaining the same, it would look like this:

There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans,
14 from the Western Hemisphere,
including North and South America,
and 8 from Africa.

51 would be female, and 49 would be male.
70 would be non-white, while 30 would be white.
89 would be heterosexual, 11 would be homosexual
66 would be non-Christian and 33 Christian.
80 would live in substandard housing.
70 would be unable to read.

Half of the entire village wealth would be
in the hands of only 6 people,
and all 6 would be citizens of the United States.

Half would suffer from malnutrition.
1 would be near death, and 1 would be near birth.
Only 1 would have a college education.
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.

If your parents are still alive and still married...
you are very rare.

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

Hmmm... something to think about!
Tamasha Besalam... Walk in Peace and love.
