If the World Were a Village of 100 People
To all my friends and loved ones致朋友们以及我所爱的人们

If the world were a Village of 100 People
If we could shrink the earth’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the exsting
human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following:
There would be：这个村子里有：
57 Asians 57人是亚洲人
21 Europeans 21人是欧洲人
10 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south 10人来自西半球的南、北美洲
8 Africans 8人是非洲人
52 would be female 52人是女性
48 would be male 48人是男性
70 would be non-while 70人是非基督教徒
30 would be white 30人是基督徒
70 would be non-christian 70人是有色人种
30 would be Christian 30人是白人
89 would be heterosexual 89人是异性恋者
11 would be homosexual 11人是同性恋者
6 people would possess 59% of the entire world’s wealth and all 6 would be from the United States. 6 人拥有全世界59％的财富而且这6 人全是美国人
80 would live in substandard housing 80人的居住环境不达标准
70 would be unable to read 70人是文盲
50 would suffer from malnutrition 50人苦于营养不良
1 would be near death; 1 would be near birth 1人濒临死亡边缘；1人正要出生
1(yes, only 1) would have a college education 1 would own a computer 1人（是的，只有１人)会接受大学教育1人拥有电脑
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 pup 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 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 dish someplace…you are
among the top 8% of the world’s wealth.
If your parents are still alive and still married…you are very rare, even in the United Stated and
Someone once said: What goes around comes around.
Work live 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.
