If you cut all of humanity to the village of a hundred people, taking into account all the proportional ratio, that will look like the population of this village: 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 Americans (North and South), 8 Africans, 52 are women, 48 men, 70 not white, 30 white, 89 heterosexual, 11 homosexual, 6 people would possess 59% of the world's wealth and all six are from the U.S., 80 is not enough housing, 70 are illiterate, 50 are malnourished, 1 dead, 2 born, from 1 to 1 computer (only one) would have a college education.
If you look at the world from this point of view, it is clear that the need for solidarity, understanding, tolerance, education is very high. Think about it. If this morning you woke up healthy, you are luckier than 1 million people who will not survive this week. If you have never experienced war, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or starvation, you are luckier than 500 million people in this world. If you can go to church without fear of harassment, arrest, or death, you are happier than 3 billion people in this world. If your refrigerator has food, you're dressed, you have a roof over your head and a bed, you are richer than 75% of people in this world. If you have a bank account, money in your wallet and some change in the bank, you belong to the 8% of wealthy people in this world. If you read this text, you are doubly blessed, because: 1) someone has thought of you 2) you do not belong to those 2 billion people who can not read and .. Do you have a computer!

Someone once said: Work like you do not need money, love like you're no one has ever been hurt, Dance as if no one is watching, sing as if no one is listening, live as if the earth paradise, and the current week — International Friendship Week.
