    Dearest friends,
    I am writing to you to ask for your help in shedding light on a perplexing situation I find myself contemplating. I have selected you as a group to aid me because I value your opinion. Your religious experiences are varied and that is important to the problem I am faced with.

    Over the years, we have all observed the seemingly random factors that affect all of our lives, sometimes without apparent rhyme or reason. We have seen some marriages dissolve over nothing and others grow stronger under adverse conditions. We have seen fate play a role in who survives critical illnesses and who succumbs to them. We have all seen good people suffer great misfortunes while some people of low character thrive. In our lifetime, we have seen Churches and Religious institutions all around the world become revised, televised, energized and even scandalized. We are all well aware that a higher power has control of nearly all things.

    Personally, I have stood in the doorway of a 7/11 in Baltimore, amid a shootout between the police and a gunman and walked away unscathed. On a golf course, I saw a lightning bolt strike a man dead while those of us nearby where untouched. We all watched as Hurricane Katrina ravaged some areas of the coast and left other nearby homes standing intact. The enormity of these random and seemingly unfair applications of good or bad fortune is at the core of my dilemma.

    I have flown over the heaviest defended area of the world and emerged unscathed - missed as tracers crisscrossed around me. I have studied sacred writings of all major religions searching for an answer, and now I pose the question to you. Why is it that the highest power in this universe could take Anna Nicole from us and leave Hillary behind?

    Thanks,

    Oh...you mean you want to know the meaning of life itself? I suggest you listen to Harry Chapin, then Rakim...then finish it off with some Ronnie James Dio. When you find yourself confused, ask yourself why...
    why are they all good?


    everyone has a different path to the same end, enjoy the ride and quit asking why. I think the best way to explain it is from my man:


    "It's like a finger pointing away to the moon. Don't concentrate on the finger, or you will miss all the heavenly glory."

    The good Lord works in mysterious ways. She is humanity's cross to bear.

    In your grieving, my son, comfort yourself with this thought: a large percentage of Anna Nicole will never biodegrade.

    so, you present a heartfelt, seemingly sincere essay that lures us in...

    and then wrap it up with a sophomoric, partisaned and cheuvanistic jab that makes no legitimate point and has us regretting we took the time to read it all in the first place and sympathize with you...

    Hmmm, sounds like all of your posts. Only, minus the heartfelt and seemingly sincere parts. :p
