Imagining the Unimaginable By Richard Rowe
Innocent people are suffering. Terrorism, war, mass murders, and crime are in the headlines every day. I hear reports of a drive-by shooting. I watch the news and witness recent actions of groups inflicting pain on innocent men, women, and children. Empathy kicks in and I imagine how it would feel to suffer like the victims.
I ask myself how people can treat other human beings so bad?
Then I tell myself I am thankful for my life and say a prayer for those who are suffering. Others may volunteer, donate and help out. We do what we can.
I try to shift my focus to stories about good people who are helping others. Some of us meditate, others pray. Some read, exercise, watch TV, or focus inward.
After a time, the internal storm passes. We continue on with our lives and let the following questions linger.
- Why do innocent people suffer?
- What’s the point of suffering?
- Why are we here?
