The whole kit & doodle!

Imagine all the people…

If we could reduce the world’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratios remaining the same, the demographics would look something like this:

60 Asians Music3
12 Europeans Music3
5 US Americans and Canadians Music3
8 Latin Americans Music3
14 Africans Music3
49 would be female Mffemale
51 would be male Mfmale
82 would be non-white Color
18 white Triplets
89 heterosexual Love6
11 homosexual Love3
33 would be Christian Pray
67 would be non-Christian Namaste
5 would control 32% of the entire world’s wealth, and all of them would be US citizens 2cents
80 would live in sub standard housing BangHead
24 would not have any electricity Tv
(And of the 76% that do have electricity, most would only use it for light at night.)
67 would be unable to read Read2
1 (only one) would have a college education. Homework
50 would be malnourished and 1 dying of starvation Cry
33 would be without access to a safe water supply Fishing
1 would have HIV Sad4
1 near death Thud
2 would be near birth A_binkybaby
7 people would have access to the Internet Googley

If you have a bank account,
money in your purse
and there is some trifle in your coin box,
you belong to 8% of well-provided people in this world. Smiley

If there is a meal in your refrigerator,
if you are dressed and have got shoes,
if you have a bed and a roof above your head,
you are better off, than 75% of people in this world. Smiley

If you have never experienced a war,
the loneliness of an imprisonment,
an agony of tortures, or a famine,
You are happier, than 500 million persons in this world. Smiley

If you woke up this morning with more health than sickness,
you are luckier than the million that will not survive this week. Smiley

If you are able to go to church, mosque or synagogue
without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death,
you are happier, than 3 billion persons in this world. Smiley

If you take a look at the world from this condensed perspective,
the need for acceptance, understanding and education becomes evident. Grouphug
