Someday when i grow up I want to be able to articulate my thoughts better. But until then …i just have to wing it.
I feel for the recent tornado victims here in Okl, but I’m so very bothered by responses of survivors!
The typical response here is: “God spared our child” , “We were blessed” and all i can think of are the ones NOT spared, NOT blessed;
crumpled bodies of children, never to grow up, never experience first love, or become a father or mother, or help to create a better world.
Are people so hard and calloused? Why not think first? simply say “we are so sad for all the lives lost, and also humbly grateful to be alive”
To say “GOD decided to spare our children” is to say to the mother who lost her child, “sorry, I guess God decided NOT to spare yours”
