About One World
(See Twin Towers 911)
and Spiritual Ideas, and Their Scientific Basis)
received the following from a friend, and it reminded me of the
reasons I had chosen the path Im on, and giving me renewed
appreciating that I had a choice at all.
food for deep thought provided to me in an email ....
If we could shrink the earth's population
to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the
existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look
something like the following
There would be: 57 Asians 21 Europeans 14 from the
Western Hemisphere, both north and south 8 Africans
52 would be female 48 would be male
70 would be non-white 30 would be white
70 would be non-Christian 30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual 11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59% 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 near birth
1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education
1 would own a computer
When one considers our world from such a compressed
perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding and
education becomes glaringly apparent.
The following is also something to ponder...
If you woke up this morning with more health than
illness...you are more blessed 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 more
blessed than three billion people in the world.
If you have food in the 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 and Canada
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.
Someone once said:
What goes around comes around.
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody's watching.
Sing like nobody's listening.
Live like it's Heaven on Earth.
