SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD

Reflection...

How can you seek first to understand, then to be understood?

Something to Think About...

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...


Where would they be from?

57 Asians

21 Europeans

14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south

8 Africans


What Gender would they be?

52 would be female

48 would be male


Race?

70 would be non-white

30 would be Christian


Religion?

70 would be Non-Christian

30 would be Christian


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

1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education

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.
