It's been a weird week. First there as the awful atrocity in Norway, which was just horrific. And then there was the death of Amy Winehouse on Saturday. Amy's death was sad in itself, but it also highlights the millions of lives that are ruined every year throughout the world due to addiction.
It's hard to see the justice sometimes. Almost 100 lives were lost in Norway due to one man, innocent people with the rest of their lives ahead of them. So too, hundreds of people have lost their lives through addiction in the past week. How is that all right? I'd class myself as spiritual rather than religious, and I can't seem to see through to the meaning behind it all.
Then there's the famine in Somalia, genocide and wars elsewhere in the globe, millions of people who seem to have the odds stacked against them from the very beginning. Sometimes it's hard to see how that is ok, and hard not to lose hope.
