Looks like it wasn't only New Yorkers mourning over the lost of the House that Ruth built.

Here's also some great videos of the Paralympic olympics in Beijing which didn't get that much publicity (a real shame). These are truly the real American heroes since they sacrificed their bodies far more than your average USA Olympian. They did it not for their own glory but they sacrificed their bodies for our freedom.

AIG debacle has been in the works for a while.
Imagine you're praying over being ripped-off by an insurance company. Imagine that you have a unique gift so that God's voice often sounds audible to you, such that you can write down stuff that you hear word for word. How strange would it sound to be interrupted during your prayer to have God rant about how insurance companies are going to fail and the bigger they are the harder they will fall? Imagine again, that all of this happens years before anyone has heard of the looming financial crisis that is unfolding before our eyes. Well, as amazing as that all sounds it happened to a friend of mine, Timothy, on May 18, 2005 and it is published for anyone who is interested:

"The Giants of This World Will Fall...Stand Not in Their Shadow / Timothy, be wary of things of dishonesty and greed in nature of those in whom you have dealt. Those in whom you have dealt, greed is at the heart of that which they do. Nowhere is help or compassion found.You are a number, a mere sign of your dollar. They will fall and come to nothing. ... If I come and remove and destroy all things, which are and lead My people into vanity, what is left?...Your life and your free will to choose, to save it or lose it. Blessed are those, who lose their life in this world for My sake...they have their reward. Woe to those, who lose themselves in this world to keep their life...they are lost. Therefore, out of love, I will remove all obstacles from their path, so they may see Me clearly and run to Me, for I wait with arms open.
All must crumble, all must be shaken.
All must be removed, all foundations broken, all must be moved from their places.
All will be done as it is written, all will be divided.
All will stand naked before their Creator so they may choose...
choose life and love, My people!"

Timothy did not know what to think of this at the time, but recent news has shed light on what he was told back then.

More recently, this letter has a few more details of the collapse:

Ripening for the harvest,
