    It seems like bad things ONLY happen to good people. It makes me question the existence of karma, but I seem to always see bad people getting all the breaks.

    is a perfect example. A good christian perspective on why bad things happen to good people is the book "the problem of pain" by C.S. Lewis.  Despite all the pain and suffering in the world, including myself and my own family's pain, I still believe everything...

    No Doubt

    Colors of dreams on a painter's pallete, washed away by series of failures can only create a perfect rainbow with his canvass as the ultimate redeemer of his lost dreams. Good and bad alike sometimes have to face failures to know the challenge of a new dream. To wonder in...

    It happens to everyone.

    There is a quote out there that has a message about how if something bad happened to you, you probably did something to deserve it. I don't agree with that philosophy. History has been put on repeat over the centuries and the players involved have to take their turns existing...
