Subject: Reminder For Today

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

-------------------------------------------------------------

98 would be heterosexual

--------------------------------------------------------------

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 70% 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.

It's National Friendship Week.
