Are you one of the lucky few in the world?

Are you one of the lucky few in the world?

If the 7.8 billion people in the world were converted to 100 people, these people would fit the following:

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

75 have mobile phones
25 do not.
30 have internet access
70 do not have the availability to go online
83 can read
17 are illiterate.

33 are Christians
l22 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 minuscule privileged minority (in less than 7%).

Amongst 100 persons in the world, only eight live or exceed the age of 65!

If you are over 65 years old, be content and grateful. Cherish life.

Grasp the moment.

If you did not leave this world before the age of 64, like the 92 persons who have gone before you, you are already blessed amongst humankind.

Take good care of your health. Cherish every remaining moment.
