Rev. Paul Hadusek asks the unanswerable question in the aftermath of Tuesday’s school bus crash that left four kids dead:
“Why, Lord? Why this?” Hadusek asked. “I don’t know if anyone of us, me included, would accept any answer from the Lord as a right answer. I don’t know.”
It’s a question that’s asked all the time, of course. But never answered, as in the shooting rampage last week in Illinois. Even on the basic facts that might lead to understanding in that case, the trail has gone cold.
Update 11:27 a.m. – Colleague Kristin Gay refers us to an episode of WHYY’s Fresh Air from earlier this week. with the author of the book, “God’s Problem.”
