    If we could shrink the earths 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 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
    6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth and all 6 would be from the United States
    80 would be living in substandard housing
    70 would be unable to read
    50 would suffer 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


    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 can attend a religious gathering wihtout 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... If you have money in the bank, in your wallet and spare change in a dish somewhere... you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy. If your parents are still alive and still married.. you are very rare, no matter where you live.
