This is not the post I had planned on writing, but the day dictated what I had to say.
On an awful day like today I argue with God. I argue why 20 innocent people doing an everyday thing had to die. I argue why are there 26 more people in hospital beds. Here in Iowa it was a tax free weekend for clothes shopping and people were out taking advantage of the tax break. I don’t know if they had a tax holiday or not in Texas, but even if there was not back to school shopping going on, it was a Saturday which is always busy. Why?
So today I am guilty of blasphemy. I openly admit it. I argue with God at a time like this. I swear, I get angry, and I cry. It is senseless violence. It has to stop. Until it does I will argue and cuss and question how a loving God can allow this to still happen. It makes me wonder if there even is a greater power at work? It makes me wonder why?
My heart goes out to those affected by this tragedy in El Paso today.
