Count your Blessings!


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?

That's exactly what Phillip M. Harter, a medical dr. at
Stanford University School of Medicine, attempted
to figure out. This is what he found.

57 would be Asian

21 would be European

14 would be from the Western Hemisphere

8 would be African

52 would be female

48 would be male

70 would be non-Christian

30 would be white

70 would be nonwhite

30 would be Christian

89 would be heterosexual

11 would be homosexual

6 people would possess 59 percent of the entire worlds 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

The following is an anonymous interpretation:

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 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, are fortunate, more than three billion people in
the world can't.

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

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish 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 hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even
touch them on the shoulder you are blessed because
you can offer a healing touch.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that
someone was thinking of you, and futhermore, 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 please pass this on !!
