If we reduce the humanity to a village with 100 inhabitants and consider the proportions of the people on Earth, the population would be:
14 Americans (North and South)
52 would be women
48 would be men
70 would be non-white
30 would be white
6 persons would own 59 % of the wealth; all of these people would come from USA
80 persons would not have a sufficient place to live.
70 would be illiterate.
50 would be mal-nourished
1 would die
2 would be born
1 would own a PC
1 would have an academic degree
When you look at the world out of this perspective it becomes clear for everyone that the need for togetherness, understanding, tolerance and education is strong.
If you woke up today and were healthy, not sick, then you luckier than the 1 million people who won’t make it through the next week.
If you’ve never lived in war, never the loneliness of capture, never the agony of torture and starvation then you’re luckier than 500 million people in the world.
If you can go to church without being afraid of being threatened, arrested och killed then you’re luckier than 3 billion people of the world.
If you have food in your fridge, clothes on you body, a roof over your head and a bed to sleep in, than you’re richer than 75 % of the world’s population.
If you have a bank account, some money in your pocket or just some change in a small box, then you belong to a small group of 8% of the population.
If you’re reading this sentence then you are twice blessed because
1) someone has thought of you
2) You don’t belong to the group of 2 billion people that can’t read.
Plus you own a PC.
Work like you don’t need money
Loved like you’ve never been hurted
Dance, like nobody’s watching
Sing, like nobody listens
Live, like paradise is on Earth!
