Do you know how lucky you are?

I'm not sure if the following statements are true, but it is a really interesting article. I got this as a forward ages ago, so some of the statistics may have changed.

If we could shrink the earth's population to 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
- 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
- (yes, only 1) would have a college education
- 1 would own a computer

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 75% of this

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in
a dish some place ... you are among the top 8% of the world's

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 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.

And again, thank you guys for the hugs!! 310!! Take that Angie!!!
