I try to remain positive and always try to see the good in everything and everyone. It isn’t hard to do. Life for me has been good—not perfect, I’ve had my share of ups and downs, but I love my life and am very thankful and blessed for the life God has provide for me and my family.  

But then when I hear about the cruel and tragic events that happen to other people in our world, I feel so sad and angry. How can people be so cruel as to want to hurt and kill others?!  It’s senseless. And when these things occur, I feel so much anger towards the person who committed the act that I wish nothing but truly bad things for them, so far as to hope they rot in hell and feel pain and guilt for all eternity.  I know that’s not christian-like for me to think or feel that way.  I just can’t help it.

To all victims and their families of cruel tragedy, may God be with you.  And may God bring comfort, love and peace to Chelsea King’s soul.

    • I know how you feel, Rose. Senseless, horrible and unfortunately in this case, likely preventable if the justice system had done a better job with his last offense. I’m completely awed by the grace and courage of her parents.

    • I am not sure if you are talking of a specific event or in general, but I’ll take it as general.

      I sometimes feel the same way as you, actually it happens to me a lot. But I try to remember that when a person commits a crime, they have often been a victim themselves early in life. This is not true for all, but my experience working in prison with minors pushes me to believe this is very often true. Violence generates violence. They learned it somewhere.This of course does not excuse their behavior. But I’m just thinking situations are rarely black or white.

      As far as bad events go, I believe nothing happens for nothing. This might seem a bit optimistic but we do not understand the full picture and what might seem extremely bad in one place in time might be the seed of something wonderful.
