6.5 billion living beings

The world population counter that I have running on my dashboard (by Jon Brown) tells me that we are 5 million people away from reaching this landmark population on our little planet. I remember it being 5 billion for the longest time from grade 1 through university. I don't know how it got high so fast (well, of course I know how, but... nevermind).

Gosh, that's a lot of poor people. I can't think of anyone of these 6,495,000,000 people who is more blessed than I am. I don't know whether to rejoice or weep!

Link to Jonbrown.org doesn't work right. I wanted to try the widget, but I don't have a Mac. =(
