Interesting words - Gail Sheehy

We had run up against the cruelest mystery of all. Why do a thousand virtuous people perish for every one who is spared? Is there anyone up there keeping score? Mohm said she wondered sometimes if whoever was up there saw human life as a game for his own amusement. I had wondered myself... I preferred to think of God as the Universe and each of us as carrying a diving spark, capable of contributing to illumination or destruction.
