The twin towers fell in 2001. The space shuttle Columbia fell to earth in 2003. The stock market fell in 2007.
In the past week we've had volcanic ash falling, snow falling, hail falling, avalanches falling, buildings falling, PEOPLE falling and spacecraft falling. What will be next?
And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the sound of the fright shall fall into the pit, and he who ascends from within the pit shall be snared in the trap, for windows from above have been opened and the foundations of the earth have trembled.
The earth has broken; the earth has crumbled; the earth totters.
The earth sways like a drunken man, and it sways like a lodge, and its transgression shall weigh down upon it, and it shall fall and not continue to rise.
