why?

·§·

why would any god allow it?
there must not be a god
no god that i want to believe in

when evil walks the land

killing innocent children

the end must be near

sometimes i pray that it is

  1. This time is even worse, because so many of the victims were just little children. Everyone is crying.

    • i know… but i don’t understand and i don’t know any way we can stop it from happening again. ♥

        I truly believe the greatest gift God gives us is freewill. God allows us to make horrendous choices, allows life to careen along and happen… and somehow people (I like to think guided by God) try to make a difference, to bring good where evil has tread. I just can’t see what sense anything makes without God in the equation… but that doesn’t mean I understand it as we go along.

  2. its easy to blame god for our insanity…it takes responsibility away from us….when a society makes it easier to get a gun than mental health assistance….we just care about the wrong things…and we forgot about god a long time ago….

    • i so agree with you that we care about the wrong things… you are a very rare person, Brian, who actually does something to try to help. thank you!

  3. So sad! I picture all these parents having their Christmas presents bought for their children….and in a heartbeat, they are gone.

    If there is a God, then there must be a devil (opposites – the balance, etc). When we love, we are vulnerable – in a good way. Nobody lives forever, and if we live on this earth without loving (risking loss) we are so much more lonely. Treasure each day, don’t waste time not being the best you can be – for yourself or the ones around you.

    I guess I have a simplistic view – I believe in God because the one thing that lives in one’s heart, if we nurture it, is Love, even after the person has left this earth. Sometimes it grows stronger.

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
