A thought provoking article from the Federalist:

For those who believe in a good God, responding to tragedies like the Las Vegas shooting is a personal problem, as much as anything else.

After the bodies are counted, the wounded are tended to, and the speeches of unity are made, how do we move forward? This was no normal attack. This was a shocking act of evil. The Port Arthur massacre pales by comparison. In order to fully process this event, the most important step is always emotional and spiritual. That means acknowledging the loss, and disappointment in God. Because the cold truth is that God could have prevented this from taking place. So why didn’t he? Where was he?
