This morning at work, I scrolled through my Fox News app and read the initial headline that there was a shooting at a school in Connecticut. My initial reaction was that a punk kid came to school and shot a classmate, and nothing further was going on. As the story developed throughout the day, I quickly learned about what had actually occurred. What does todays tragedy have to do with my faith? In the past several years, I have drifted further and further away from any relationship with God. I can remember the exact day that I began questioning faith was during a deployment to Iraq when a fellow Marine was killed. My family recently made a visit, and my father and I began having a conversation about religion, and I told him flat out that I could not understand how a just God could allow such terrible things to happen to undeserving people. He could not give me an answer that was acceptable in my eyes. I do not ask God for favors, and I often chuckle (to myself) when people suggest that God has a plan for everyone. My first reaction to what happened today, to my surprise, was to pray for all of the children, moms and dads, whose lives have been destroyed. Although I felt it necessary to pray, my instant emotion was anger, mostly with God, so I refused to pray. I will admit that I have yet to pray. I post this because I think that somewhere deep inside me I still have faith in God, and I am looking for help in finding my faith. Can anyone explain to me why God would let something like this happen?
