I found this in an old post of mine from from in 9/13/2002

***I found this on a site called Scacred Gardens. It kept haunting me so I thought I`d share it.***


A World View of our Sacred Garden...

If we could shrink the Earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people,
with all existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look like this:

There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the Western Hemisphere
(North and South) and 8 Africans.
51 would be female; 49 would be male.
70 would be non-white; 30 white.
70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian.
50% of the entire world's wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people.
All 6 would be citizens of 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
Only 1 would have a college education.
No one would own a computer.


When one considers our world from such an incredibly compressed perspective, the need for both tolerance and understanding becomes glaringly apparent........
