THE WORLD TODAY
THE WORLD TODAY
If the population of the Earth is reduced to that of a small town, with 100 people, it would look something like this:
14 Americans (northern and southern)
52 women and 48 men
70 Coloured skins and 30 caucasions.
89 heterosexuals 11 homosexuals
6 people would own 59% of the whole worlds wealth, and all of them would be from the United States of America
80 would have bad living conditions
70 are uneducated
50 under fed
1 would die
2 would be born
1 (only one) will have a 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 1 million people that will not survive the week.
If you never suffered a war, the lonliness of the jail cell, or hunger. You are happier than 500 million people in the world today.
If you can enter a church (mosque) without the fear of jail or death, you are happier than 3 million people in the world today.
If there is food in your fridge
You have shoes and clothes
You are richer than 70% or the people in the world today.
If you have a bank account, money in your wallet, and some coins in a money box, you belong to the 80% of people in the world, who are well-to-do.
1) somebody just though of you
2) you dont belong the the 200 million people who cannot read
3) and you have a computor
As somebody once said:
"Work as if you dont need money
Love as if your've never been hurt
Dance, as if nobody can see you
Sing, as if no one can hear you
Live, as if the earth was a hevean"

Appropos...I was at an international meeting and the US proposed some really stupid idea. A delegate from another country said..."You are the richest civilzation humans have ever created. Yet you cannot feed all your hungry. You cannot shelter all your people. You cannot take care of the health of your children. God is going to punish you."

Thanks for your responses and it was just a thought. I also agree with you Puntachueca its the same here in Australia. However I think that if the wealthy were more generous to the not so pliveledged then that would also make a difference. Blondie XXX|
