World Today.

If the population of the Earth was reduced to that of a small town with 100 people, it would look something like this:

57 Asians
21 Europeans
14 Americans (northern and southern)
8 Africans

52 women
48 men

70 coloured-skins
30 caucasians

89 heterosexuals
11 homosexuals

6 people would own 59% of the whole world wealth and all of them will be from the United States of America
80 would have bad living conditions
70 would be uneducated
50 underfed
1 would die
2 would be born
1 would have a computer 1 (only one) will have higher education.

When you look at the world from this point of view,
you can see there is a real need for solidarity,
understanding, patience and education.

Also think about the following;

-This morning, if you woke up healthy,
then you are happier than the 1 million people
that will not survive next week.

-If you never suffered a war,
the loneliness of the jail cell,
the agony of torture,or hunger,
you are happier than 500 million people in the world.

-If you can enter into a church (mosque)
without fear of jail or death,
you are happier then 3 billion people in the world.

-If there is a food in your fridge,
you have shoes and clothes,
you have bed and a roof,
you are richer then 75% of the people in the world.

-If you have bank account,
money in your wallet
and some coins in the money-box,
you belong to the 8% of the people on the world, who are well-to-do.

-If you read this you are three times blessed because:

1. somebody just thought of you.
2. you don't belong to the 800 million people that cannot read.
3. and... you have a computer.

"work as if you don't need money,
love as if you've never been hurt,
dance, as if nobody can see you,
sing, as if no one can hear,
live, as if the Earth was a heaven."
