God and God alone knows the secret reason that we suffer in this life. We can only rest assured that there *is* a good purpose to it all. If you’re one of those people who don’t believe in God or any other organizing force, and I mean this, then good luck to you. You live in a universe where children die for nothing. Where pain is meaningless and every last awful thing that happens just happens. That’s a cold, dark scary place and I hope to never find that universe.
