[BOB] ABERNETHY: When people come to you and say where was God in what happened in Haiti, what do you tell them?
[RABBI JACK] MOLINE: The glib answer is to just say God was there. But I was walking through the synagogue the other day and a couple of kids were horsing around. One of them bumped her head and started to cry. Her friend immediately apologized, and I walked over and gave her a hug. I wasn’t able to stop the pain, but I was able to share it with her a little bit, as was her friend. I think that’s where God is—sharing that pain.
ABERNETHY: With the people who are suffering, suffering with them?
MOLINE: With the people who are suffering. Absolutely.
