Kind of makes one think.
Here's an interesting perspective…. If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all of the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following:
14 from the Western Hemisphere (both north and south)
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
89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59% of the 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 form such a compressed perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding, and education becomes glaringly apparent.
