Like everyone else, I’ve been trying to cope with Friday’s tragedy. Most of the victims were just little kids trying to become big kids. Some were adults who became fatalities and teachers who became lifesavers.
“Where was God?” I read that some people asked, while either genuinely seeking an answer or attempting to present a political position.
I believe that we're all part of God and manifest that part of us in our everyday lives through our actions and intentions. Evil exists as a manifestation of actions and intentions by those who have lost hope. The God part becomes lost in that hopelessness. It’s an equilibrium that we may not understand, but we see or read about it every day.
When people learn to accept that, they will stop looking for answers in all the wrong places and come to realize how connected we all are to each other.
