WHEN YOUNG PEOPLE DIE WE WONDER WHY!!!!!!

RECENTLY A DEAR FRIEND OF MINE GOT A CALL THAT ONE OF HER GRANDSONS HAD BEEN IN A TERRIBLE TRUCK ACCIDENT! GRANDSON, AGE LATE TEENS! 

IN LESS THAN A WEEK THE YOUNG MAN WAS DEAD!

HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN? WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?

WHEN TRYING TO UNDERSTAND WHY THIS TRAGEDY HAPPENED:

IT WAS AN ACCIDENT REGARDLESS OF “FAULT”……………NOBODY WANTED IT TO HAPPEN! IN ONE MOMENT THE LIVES OF NUMEROUS PEOPLE/FAMILIES CHANGED FOREVER! NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME WITH THEM AGAIN!

WHEN OLD PEOPLE DIE WE UNDERSTAND THAT THEY HAD A LONG LIFE AND MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPERIENCE THE EARTH AND ALL OF ITS PARTICULARS. WHEN YOUNG PEOPLE DIE THE QUESTION BECOMES WHY!? THIS PERSON NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO LIVE A COMPLETE LIFE!!!! WHY NOT!? WHY DIDN’T SOME OTHER OLD PERSON JUST DIE IN THEIR PLACE AND LET THE YOUNG HAVE A SHOT AT A FULL LIFE?

OTHER QUESTIONS COME TO MIND:

DID GOD WANT THIS TO HAPPEN?

WAS SOME ONE BEING PUNISHED BY THIS ACT?

WAS IT JUST A RANDOM ACT LEADING TO AN ACCIDENT?

WHY? WHY? WHY? WE JUST CAN’T GRASP THE ANSWER!!!!! WE JUST CAN’T UNDERSTAND!!!!!

MY FRIEND’S ANSWER WAS: SOME THINGS WE NEVER UNDERSTAND BUT ACCEPT AND CONTINUE ON TO BECOME STRONGER IN LOVE AND FAITH AND SERVICE TO OTHERS.  A VERY NOBLE AND GOD LOVING ANSWER GIVEN BY ONE OF THE BEST PEOPLE I KNOW!

I KNOW THAT BUT MY HEART/SOUL WILL NOT LET ME STOP WITH THAT! “SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND” SO I WILL CONTINUE TO SEARCH FOR UNDERSTANDING…………AND I WILL FIND IT!

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT; THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH LEAVING IT WITH “SOME THINGS WE NEVER UNDERSTAND”.

BUT: WHAT IF:

1. WHEN OUR PURPOSE IN LIFE IS FULFILLED WE DIE.

2. SUPPOSE THAT OUR LIFE’S SOLE PURPOSE IS TO LIVE AND DIE SO THAT SOMEONE OR SOMEONES LEARN VALUABLE LESSONS ABOUT LIFE THAT THEY WOULDN’T LEARN WITHOUT OUR LIFE BEING LIVED AS IT IS/WAS?

3. SUPPOSE WE LIVE MORE THAN ONE LIFETIME? HAVING A SHORT ONE IN ONE LIFETIME MIGHT JUST BE FOLLOWED BY ONE OF 100 YEARS!

4. AND WHAT AFTER ALL IS THE PURPOSE OF A LIFETIME? WHO JUDGES WHETHER OR NOT IT WAS TOO SHORT OR TOO LONG?

WE ALL MAY NOT BE SATISFIED WITH THE SAME ANSWER.

BUT WE ALL SHOULD CONSIDER THAT WHATEVER A PERSON BELIEVES TO BE THE ANSWER IS THEIR CHOICE AND RESPECT IT BECAUSE NONE OF US ARE SO WISE THAT WE HAVE ALL OF THE “TRUE” ANSWERS OR IN FACT ANY OF THEM.

“ONE DAY THE VEIL WILL BE LIFTED AND YE SHALL UNDERSTAND”………..AND THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!
