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:

80 live in substandard housing / 24 don't have any electricity / 50 malnourished and 1 dying of starvation and 1 with HIV / 1 with a college education and with internet access / 5 control 32% of the entire world's wealth, all are US citizens.

If you have never experienced war, imprisonment, torture or famine you are probably happier than 500 million people in this world.

If you are able to go to church, mosque, or synagogue without fear of harrassment, you are happier than 3 billion people in this world.

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

If you read this text, you do not belong to the 2 billion people who cannot read.

This is your World! And you are able to make changes! Hasten to do good works!
