You are extremely blessed

Hi Winners,

I am extremely happy in meeting you all again after a long gap, I was researching on lot of schools for my Son’s next venture.    Finally I had chosen a school in alwarpet and tomorrow is his first day (I feel as if its my first day).   I am more puzzled, thrilled and eager to see his first day.

This time I bring you with some important facts that I had read in one of the website.   On reading these facts you will definetly feel that you are one of the most blessed one in this world.    Don’t feel bad for small things and happenings.   Life had given you lot of things to enjoy.    Enjoy reading this.

If we could shrink the earth’s population to a village of 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 would be 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
  • (ONE)1 would be near death
  • (ONE)1 would be near birth
  • (ONE)1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education
  • (ONE)1 (yes, only 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.

And, therefore . . .

  • 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 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 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 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 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 hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.
  • If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.

As you read this and are reminded how life is in the rest of the world, remember just how blessed you really are!    Feel blessed for your current state in this world and enjoy it.

Have many wonderful moments.

    Certainly a great note ……I always believe one should “count your blessings ” …helps put most things in perspective. (especially when you think the grass is greener on the other side !)

    Good work Saran …..keep collating such articles ….a useful and creative hobby 🙂
