KEEPING IT ALL IN PERSPECTIVE…


If Earth's population was shrunk into a village of just 100 people-with all the human ratios existing in the world still remaining-what would this tiny, diverse village look like? That's exactly what Phillip M. Harter, a medical doctor at the Stanford University School of Medicine, attempted to figure out. This is what he found:


57 would be Asian
21 would be European
14 would be from the Western Hemisphere
8 would be African
52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be nonwhite
30 would be white
70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59 percent of the entire world's wealth, and all 6 would be from the United States.
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
1 would be near death
1 would be pregnant
1 would have a college education
1 would own a computer

I thought this was interesting and wanted to share this with you because as I read this I thought to myself that… If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep...you are richer than so many persons in this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace you are among the worlds wealthy. If you woke up this morning with more health than illness...you are more fortunate than the many 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 a lot of people in the world. If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death...you are fortunate, quite a number of people in the world can't. If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful... you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not. If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder...you are blessed because you can offer a healing touch…I GUESS @ THE END OF IT ALL IT IS ALL ABOUT KEEPING IT IN PERSPECTIVE…

  2. I'd most definitely have to agree with clnmike on this one... this scenario would be very depressing.
