Earth Status report

Vey nice article from

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 of America

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) without fear of jail or death, you are happier then 3 million people i n the world.

If there is a food in your fridge,

you have shoes and clothes,

you have bed and a roof,

you are richer then 75% of the people in th e 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!

As somebody once said:
“- Work as if you don’t need money,

- Love as if you’ve never been hurt,

- D ance, as if nobody can see you,

- Sing, as if no one can hear,

- Live, as if the Earth was a heaven.”

If you like, send this to people you call friends.
If you don’t send this, nothing will happen. But, if you send it - someone will smile

So start living & stop worrying, you don’t know how blessed you are!
