    1. “sin” in the world causes much suffering.

      but we are meant for eternity in God’s Presence and Provision …

      .. if we choose to accept Jesus’s propitiation, and choose Him as Lord.

    2. We don’t. Human evolution was a fluke. All we are is advanced monkeys.

    3. We Belong Here. The planet Earth is the only material world where evolution of the spirit incarnate can evolve to it’s highest Self through many forced lifetimes on the karmic wheel of Samsara. And, through devout meditation with sincerity seeking your GOD within, you may eventually gain release from that wheel of Life.

  1. According to today’s news reports…
    Some grieve, while others (ambulance chasing lawyers) file lawsuits.

  2. Nice video!! Very engaging from beginning to end. Nevertheless, businesses and investment are the easiest way to make money irrespective of which party makes it to the oval office.

    1. My first investment with Mr GEORGE gave me the assurance that has made me invest without the fear of losing, I got four of my friends involved with him already

    2. I’m from the UK I and my colleagues gave him a try and it has been good returns of our investment, Thanks Mr GEORGE GILBETH

    3. I was earning low monthly with expert THOMAS, but ever since I was referred to expert GEORGE it has been high profits althrough,no excuses like other experts who gamble with peoples money.

  3. HOPE
    Salvation is found in no one else, no other name under heaven given among men where by we must be saved.
    Saved from the punishment of sin.
    I’m trying to offer people Hope in absolute perfection !!!
    No more pain, dying, lies, decay, depression, anxiety, crying, sickness, rotten food, broken things , etc…
    offering the Hope of Eternity in heaven with Jesus Christ.
    We must be willing to turn from sin and to believe the Gospel, Mark 1:15 to receive Jesus forgiveness.
    He who does the will of God abides for eternity 1 John 2:17
    Visual Bible movies on YouTube. Matthew, Acts, Luke, John

  4. How is everybody acting so senseless about this?!?!? These people suffered a terrible fate because somebody didn’t do there job the right way. Have some respect, this could of been you just as easily it was them.

  5. When it comes to the world of investing,most people don’t know where to start.fortunately,great investors of the past and present can provide us with guidance

    1. My first investment with Mr Erik Finman gave me the assurance that has made me invest without the fear of losing, I got four of my friends involved with him already

    2. I’m from the UK I and my colleagues gave him a try and it has been good returns of our investment, Thanks Mr Erik Finman

    3. You want to make a great investment ?? Start buying Condos that are very close to this building for they’re going to be going on the market & lots of them & you can steal them in 6 months…

  6. What’s really scary is the media is actually covering “NEWS” can’t wait to see what this is the perfect disguise for in government.

  7. I just fine there’s sooooo much sadness… It’s like people just cannot catch a break…If it ain’t one thing it’s another just try to help one another yes….I really wish I could hop on a plane and just comfort those who need my hugs steupsss may God bless and keep all yuh yes…stay strong blessings..

  8. So we’re gonna ignore that the building was in danger of collapsing due to all the weather conditions that afflicted it and yet they were still allowed to stay open?
    Which part of this doesn’t scream extreme negligence? It could’ve been avoided and it wasn’t.

  9. Good News Translation
    I have told you this so that you will have peace by being united to me. The world will make you suffer. But be brave! I have defeated the world!” John 16:33

  10. What will be the effect of rising sea level? “In areas where a local water table rises near the surface, water can push against the underside of the foundation in a condition known as ‘hydrostatic pressure.’ This may cause water to infiltrate through the bottom of the foundation – even permeating solid concrete over time. If hydrostatic pressure is severe, it could lift certain portions of the foundation out of the ground, but this is very unlikely. But it could cause shifting of foundation walls and structures like fencing and decks.”
