Yet another financial professional allegedly committed suicide in Manhattan on March 8th.
Kenneth Bellando, who worked for Levy Capital, was found on the ground outside his Eastside apartment complex. Authorities reported that he jumped from a sixth-story roof to the pavement below.
This death was the eighth financial-sector suicide this year, and the third in as many weeks. The question everybody is now asking: Is this a coincidence… or a conspiracy?

WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for yesterday, today and tomorrow by Marty Martel
Today I have felt better than I have for several days, and I just want to thank everyone for their prayers for my health issues. Prayers also to find the Malaysian plane that is still missing with over 200 people on board, and all of their families waiting to hear about their loved ones who are on the plane. Pray that the Blessed Lord will take their hands and walk with them through this most difficult time.
Prayer to Have Inner Peace in the Coming Day
Heavenly God, may I have peace within, this day;
May I trust God that I am exactly where I am meant to be.
May I not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May I use those gifts that I have received, and pass on the love that has been given to me.
May I be confident knowing I am a child of God.
Let this presence settle into my bones, and allow my soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
This I pray in Christ’s name.
If you have anyone you would like to send a prayer out to please mail them to

2014 ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year – Why George Strait Should Win
If George Strait wins the Entertainer of the Year Award at the 2014 ACMs in Las Vegas, he’ll set a record for longest break between EOTYs. Strait won his first — and shockingly only — honor in 1989, more than 25 years ago! Brooks and Dunn currently hold the record with five years between wins (1996 to 2001).
A fair argument could be made that if the King wasn’t wrapping up one part of his career in 2014, he wouldn’t be nominated, but you’ll have a hard time finding a fan or music insider offended by his inclusion. If ever there was someone deserving of a legacy award — something equal to the great Cal Ripken Jr.’s final All Star Game selection — it’s George Strait.
With 60 No. 1 hits, the steady legend won’t just lean on his long resume to earn him his second EOY Award on April 6. Musically, his most recent singles from the ‘Love Is Everything’ album have been as artistically satisfying as anything he’s released, even if they haven’t become his 61st and 62nd chart-toppers (‘I Got a Car’ is still climbing). Strait’s 2013 tour was one of the most anticipated events of the year, with 20 sold out venues across America.
Below, you’ll find the highlights of Strait’s Entertainer of the Year campaign. Fans can vote for their favorite at VoteACM.com until the third hour of the live CBS Broadcast on April 6.
The Music: Strait released two singles during the eligibility period. ‘I Believe’ received critical acclaim, but met a frosty reception at country radio. His current single ‘I Got a Car’ was released just before the deadline. After a slow start, the song is beginning to catch on. Like many of the King’s best tunes, the impact of his satisfying story takes some time to hit.
The Tour: The first leg of the Cowboy Rides Away Tour was arguably the most coveted concert ticket of 2014. Martina McBride joined Strait for 20 memorable dates across the country, a prequel to his final extended tour, which began early in 2014.
The Intangibles: If fans agree with industry voters who named Strait the CMA’s Entertainer of the Year in 2013, this Country Music Hall of Famer’s legacy will be a factor. Brian Mansfield of USA Today said Strait’s EOTY nod is more of an Entertainer of a Lifetime nomination, and while any deviation from the rules would normally outrage fans of other nominated artists, few are complaining.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. So when you’re acutely aware of your insufficiency-rejoice! This is what being poor in spirit is all about. The world applauds self-sufficiency, and bookstores abound with volumes designed to help you reach this goal. However, this is not the way of My kingdom. I want My children to recognize and rejoice in their utter dependence on Me.
You have been saved by grace, through faith. Both grace and faith are gifts! Your part is to be receptive and responsive to these glorious gifts. The best response is gratitude-a heart overflowing with thankfulness for all I have done. You are exceedingly blessed because the kingdom of heaven is yours. When the strain of living in this fallen world is getting you down, resist the temptation to feel sorry for yourself. Instead, say to yourself, I am blessed and thankful-and on my way to Glory!
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. -Matthew 5:3 nkjv
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. -Ephesians 2:8
“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! -2 Corinthians 9:15”
You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. -Psalm 73:24 nkjv
