    Global Village

    Global Village
    If you could fit the entire population of the world into a village consisting of 100 people,
    maintaining the proportions of all the people living on Earth, that village would consist of
    57 Asians 21 Europeans 14 Americans (North, Central and South) 8 Africans
    There would be: 52 women and 48 men 30 Caucasians and 70 non-Caucasians 30 Christians and 70 non-Christians 89 heterosexuals and
    11 homosexuals
    6 people would possess 59% of the wealth and they would all come from the USA
    80 would live in poverty* 70 would be illiterate 50 would suffer from hunger and malnutrition 1 would be dying 1 would be being born 1 would own a computer
    1 (yes, only one) would have a university degree
    If we looked at the world in this way,
    the need for acceptance and understanding would
    be obvious.
    But, consider again the following :
    If you woke up this morning in good health, you have more luck than one million people, who won’t live through the week.
    If you have never experienced the horror of war, the solitude
    of prison, the pain of torture, were not close to death from
    starvation, then you are better off than 500 million people.
    If you have never experienced the horror of war, the solitude
    of prison, the pain of torture, were not close to death from
    starvation, then you are better off than 500 million people.
