A Summary of the World

      If we could, at this time, 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.
      70 would be non-white; 30 white.
      70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian.
      50% of the entire world wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people.
      All 6 would be citizens of the United States.
      70 would be unable to read.
      50 would suffer from malnutrition.
      80 would live in sub-standard housing.
      Only 1 would have a college education.
      When one considers our world from such an incredibly compressed
      perspective, the need for both tolerance and understanding becomes
      glaringly apparent.
