- Birth pangs of 2007? You tell me!

Post by Christ is My Life! on Thu Jul 19, 2007 2:07 am

I found this, and thought it was interesting. I will try to find for the previous years too. If anyone can find a list from the 90's on up, that would be great. Here is for 2007. This does not list the fires in July in Greece, or other areas of Europe, nor does it mention the big earthquake in Japan that is listed on another topic thread here. But, here is what I consider a smaller list.
