Something to Consider and Think About!

Someone I know forwarded this article to me.

Subject: Fwd: something to consider

While waiting for life to get back to normal consider this…


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 can go to your place of worship without fear that someone will

assault or kill you, then you are luckier than 3 billion (that’s right) people.



If you have a full fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head

and a place to sleep, you are wealthier than 75% of the world’s population.         



If you currently have money in the bank, in your wallet and a few

coins in your purse, you are one of 8 of the privileged few among the

100 people in the world.


If your parents are still alive and still married, you’re a rare individual.


If someone sent you this message, you’re extremely lucky, because

someone is thinking of you ~ and because you don’t comprise one of

those 2 billion people who can’t read.




Work like you don’t need the money.

Love like nobody has ever hurt you.

Dance like nobody is watching.

Sing like nobody is listening.

and Live as if this was paradise on Earth.


I hope you Send this message to your friends.

If you don’t send it, nothing will happen….

If you do send it, someone might smile while they are reading it,

and that will be a positive.
