   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.
 
                                  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,
synagogue, etc without fear of jail or death,
           you are happier than 3 million people in
the world.

            If there is 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 200
                            million people that cannot read.   
            3 .     and... you have a computer!
 
      Somebody once said:
            - 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."
