My brother, Lloyd Williamson, forwarded this gem to me.  If things stay difficult or get worse where you live, this may help you put it in perspective.   

How Lucky We Are

Read all the way to the end, please, it does have something to say!

If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, 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
  • 89 would be heterosexual
  • 11 would be homosexual
  • 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 more fortunate than 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 75% 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.

So:

  • 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.

Nothing will happen if you do not decide to pass this along. The only thing that will happen, if you DO pass it on, is that someone might smile because of you.

Happy Friendship Week!
