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?

# 60 would be Asian.
# 12 would be European.
# 15 would be from the Western Hemisphere (9 Latin Americans, 5 North Americans, 1 Oceanian).
# 13 would be African.

# 50 would be female.
# 50 would be male.

# 80 would be nonwhite.
# 20 would be white.

# 67 would be non-Christian.
# 33 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.

Think of it this way. If you live in a good home, have plenty to eat and can read, you are a member of a very select group. And if you have a good house, food, can read and have a computer, you are among the very elite.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness...you are more fortunate than the million 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 500 million people in the world.

If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death...you are fortunate; more than three billion people in the world can't.

If you have a refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep...you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace...you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still married...you are very rare, even in the United States.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Have a good day, count your blessings, and pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.

Not to nitpick, but it says, "# 15 would be from the Western Hemisphere (9 Latin Americans, 5 North Americans, 1 Oceanian)," and then goes on to say, "# 6 people would possess 59 percent of the entire world's wealth, and all 6 would be from the United States."

Now how can there be only 5 North Americans but 6 from the US? Last time I checked, all 6 from the US would necessarily need to come from North America.


But I get the point. We have so much to be thankful for.
