Another child in a box .........

Part of me is angry God don't do this again
not now
please
I don't understand even now
even now
What lesson for us is this
We're
trying to understand
Another mother bending at the
knees over a lifeless child
Lined up for all to see her
and now lines of them
are you proud now
are you angry
We know about our sins
we know
But what about your's
I don't understand
I don't understand

This kind of dark , and yet I always look to the faces of our fellow humanity in these tragedies and think , why? Believe me , my faith has been tested on this earth and I know that God owes us no answers for our own sins . or for those of the evil among us . And yet the belligerent fool in me still asks , Why?

Hi ahorseback.

My wife and I send our condolences to each and every family that has lost an Angel on this sad day.

Your words form the question that everyone is asking: Dear Lord "WHY"

Thank you for this. Strange, we should cry for these children and not those killed in an an Indian clothing manufacturer facility. If you really need a shock see UNICEF's worldwide child mortality rate.

Ed..i felt as if i had been punched in the gut - and that was just reading that terribly powerful title...omg..

i am weeping and more than that - i am ashamed to be clumped in a human race i do not recognize..

You're absolutely right WHY? But I keep the faith and pray for all those families and know that the victims are with God. But yes, I still wonder....
