What kind of world are we living in where a man murders his wife and child over a weekend, then kills himself? Where the same man has given his SEVEN year old son growth hormone because he wasn't growing at the proper rate?
This Chris Benoit story has blown my mind: I can't imagine a man killing his wife and son, then hanging himself 2 days later. What could possibly be so bad that doing that is the best possible scenario?
I just don't get it: and I know how blessed I am to have 3 healthy, happy children. And believe me, I hugged all three of them extra tight tonight. I just don't understand how a man can come to that point and decide that is the best course of action.
Lot's of evil in the world: I guess as a Dad it's my job to keep that from them as long as possible.
I wish I had an answer for why stuff like this happens: I don't. The world is a scary place, and it seems like it gets scarier by the day. I wonder what I'm doing raising 3 children in a time where the value of a human life means this little.
My Pastor told us last Sunday that it's OK to ask God why he let's all this bad stuff happen. That it's OK not to understand, as a Dad, how this Benoit thing can come about.
I think I'll take him up on that tonight.
