If the population of the Earth was reduced to
that of a small town with 100 people, it would look
something like this:
14 Americans (northern and southern)
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
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
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
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."
