Sell My Timeshare NOW Wishes You a Very Happy Thanksgiving
Thursday, November 27, 2008
Across America, people are sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner and time with those they love. In a day that has come to be about football, parades, and pumpkin pie, people sometimes forget that this is also a time for giving thanks. Whether you enjoy turkey and all the trimmings with your family and friends or you microwave your frozen dinner and dine alone, here are some thoughts that may cause you to reconsider just how blessed you really are …
(This information appears on the Miniature Earth and numerous other places on the Web.)
If we could turn the population of the earth into a small community of 100 people, keeping the same proportions we have today, you would find something like this:
- 43 live without basic sanitation
- 18 live without good drinking water
- 13 are hungry or malnourished
- 14 can’t read
- only 7 are educated at a secondary level
- only 12 have a computer … and only 3 have an internet connection
If you have a bank account, no matter how small … You’re one of the 30 wealthiest people in the 100-person world.
And if you keep your food in a refrigerator, your clothes in a closet, have a roof over your head, and a bed to sleep in, then you are richer than 75 percent of the entire world population.
There is no doubt that 2008 has been a challenging year for many people. We have experienced changes in the US and the global economies that most of us never imagined we would see. Your bank account may be slimmer or your stock options worth less than they were a year ago, but even in tough times, most of us are far more blessed than we realize.
While celebrating Thanksgiving is uniquely American, the idea of pausing to spend time with your family and to count your blessings, is a wonderful tradition, beneficial across borders and boundaries around the globe … so from everyone at Sell My Timeshare NOW and The Timeshare Authority:
