Yesterday, I scanned Twitter, that great marketplace of ideas and current thought, to see what the grassroots are saying. "Stay focused," one person wrote. "No matter wht comes ur way; opinions, doubt, fear, anxieties, etc. God is in control. Trust ."
Trust is very hard. Then I stumbled across a blog by Orthodox Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (on an unrelated topic) where he asks why some children are abandoned in this world and others are not; why evil falls in one place but not another. Like the rest of us, he doesn't know.
"The Creator chooses, for reasons unknown to us," he writes, "to hide behind the veil of nature and it is we humans who must fill in the seemingly empty spaces."
Read it all.
