Mind Thoughts

     Food for thought...
     If we could shrink the earth's population to a town of precisely 100 
     people...with all existing human ratios remaining the same, it would 
     look like this:
     there would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the western hemisphere 
     (north and south) and 8 Africans.
     51 would be female; 49 would be male.
     70 would be nonwhite; 30 white
     70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian.
     50% of the entire world's wealth would be in the hands of only 6 
     people and all 6 would be citizens of 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.
     only 1 would have a college education.
     No one would own a computer.
     When you consider our world from such an incredibly compressed 
     perspective, the need for both tolerance and understanding becomes 
     very apparent!

Pass it on...
