God must have been on leave for he wasn’t there to save them.
16th Dec 2014 Peshawar school attack: 145 dead, mostly children
15th Dec 2014 Sydney cafe siege: 2 + gunman dead
5th Dec 2014 Uri and Tral attacks: 12 dead
3rd Nov 2014 Wagah border attack: more than 50 dead
Or this must be a part of his great plan where we humans learn how to swallow our tears and face the world toughened through our sorrow.
Now we will need to ask this God to give the parents the strength to get over the loss of the children they sent to school this morning, and the children to continue to live without their mothers and fathers who got killed for God’s sake.
The world over, trouble and terror are in the name of God. If there was no God, would there be peace without there having to be war? Maybe God is not on leave. Maybe he has never been around at all.
