The anonymous injustice of life
I’ve always felt that life was unfair.
A blind man could see that.
Then came the accident and Ryan’s violent death, which proved, beyond a reasonable doubt that I was right: life is unfair.
Do you think life singles us out?
Or, that life is fundamentally against us?
If that’s true, how can we ever Hope?
For years, I was paralyzed by the anonymous injustice of life.
I mean, is there anybody in charge out there?
I felt all helpless because I’d woken up so many times, only to realize there is no magic wand that fixes everything.
The magic was gone.
So, since life is unfair, what do we do?
We Hope again.
We have to.
It’s in our DNA.
Living without Hope takes away the now-ness of life, and wipes out the future.
But Hope, that beautiful four-letter word, restores our Faith.
I’m living proof!
