I came across some incredible statistics the other day that were mind blowing. I don't know where this came from, but it really should opens our eyes the the REAL world we live in.

The population of Earth is around 7.8 Billion.
For most people, it is a large figure, that is all.
However, if you condensed 7.8 billion in the world into 100 persons, and then into various percentage statistics.
The resulting analysis is relatively much easier to comprehend.

Out of 100 :
11 are in Europe
5 are in North America
9 are in South America
15 are in Africa
60 are in Asia
49 live in the countryside
51 live in cities
12 speak Chinese
5 speak Spanish
5 speak English
3 speak Arabic
3 speak Hindi
3 speak Bengali
3 speak Portuguese
2 speak Russian
2 speak Japanese
62 speak their own language.
77 have their own houses
23 have no place to live.
21 are over-nourished
63 can eat full
15 are under-nourished
1 ate the last meal, but did not make it to the next meal.
The daily cost of living for 48 is less than 2 USD (2 USD).
87 have clean drinking water
13 either lack clean drinking water or have access to a water source
that is polluted.
75 have mobile phones
25 do not.
30 have internet access
70 do not have conditions to go online
7 received university education
93 did not attend college.
83 can read
17 are illiterate.
33 are Christians
22 are Muslims
14 are Hindus
7 are Buddhists
12 are other religions
12 have no religious beliefs.
26 live less than 14 years
66 died between 15 - 64 years of age
8 are over 65 years old.
If you have your own home,
Eat full meals & drink clean water,
Have a mobile phone,
Can surf the internet, and
have gone to college,
You are in the miniscule privileged lot.
(in the less than 7% category)
Amongst 100 persons in the world, only 8 can live or exceed the age of 65.
If you are over 65 years old, be content & grateful. Cherish life, grasp the moment
You did not leave this world before the age of 64 years like the 92
persons who have gone before you. You are already the blessed amongst
Pretty stunning aren't they. We ARE blessed.
