Delta Flight 15

Ample proof that most people are inherently good is in this story of how people respond in need.  Left to their own devices and without government mandate the people in the Gander area responded to the need of fellow humans during the time just after the 9-11 events.  This is a story about people helping people and being what they were intended to be.

Here is an amazing story from a flight attendant on Delta Flight 15, written following 9-11:

"On the morning of Tuesday, September 11, we were about 5 hours out of
Frankfurt, flying over the North Atlantic. All of a sudden the curtains parted and I was told to go to the cockpit, immediately, to see the captain. As soon as I got there I noticed that the crew had that "All Business" look on their faces. The captain handed me a printed message. It was from Delta's main office in Atlanta and simply read, "All airways over the Continental United States are closed to commercial air traffic. Land ASAP at the nearest airport. Advise your destination."

Velocity of Money

I hope my friends will take the time to read this, study this chart and gain a little more insight into what’s going on.  Even if I am wrong it will give you something to think about and maybe even a different way to look at your country and economy. 

Velocity of Money is the rate of turnover in the money supply;  In other words, the number of times one dollar is used to purchase final goods and services included in GDP. 

In a healthy robust economy this velocity is high and in a growing economy the number is increasing.
