Don't know exactly what to say. That clip was a hard thing to watch. If good thoughts have ANY healing power then David is in good hands. He certainly will get millions of them over the next few days...and longer. Glad he's coming back to Boston. There aren't finer medical facilities in the world than what we have here. No knowing the WHY of it will frustrate most of us, but there is nothing we can do about it until it becomes known. This tragedy got me thinking about a book that was popular in the early 80's. "When bad things happen to Good people". By EVERY account David is a very good person. So Why? The book was published in 1981 and was a comfort to be at a very bad time in my life. What happened to David got me thinking about the book and I looked up a quote that I thought might be appropriate when things like this happen, whether its David or any random tragedy that makes no sense and seems so unfair. Kushner sums up his thoughts this way: "Is there an answer to the question of why bad things happen to good people? That depends on what we mean by 'answer'. If we mean 'Is there an explanation which will make sense of it all?'… then there probably is no satisfying answer. We can offer learned explanations, but in the end, when we have covered all the squares on the game board and are feeling very proud of our cleverness, the pain and the anguish and the sense of unfairness will still be there. But the word 'answer' can also mean 'response' as well as 'explanation,' and in that sense, there may well be a satisfying answer to the tragedies in our lives. The response would be Job's response in MacLeish's version of the biblical story—to forgive the world for not being perfect, to forgive God for not making a better world, to reach out to the people around us, and to go on living despite it all.
