A Question of Tragedy

Peaceful Nigerian villagers are killed in their homes. Parisians out for a night on the town are gunned down. A holiday party is targeted and a celebration turns to tragedy. Beirut shoppers in an open air market are blasted to death by suicide bombers.

One question keeps rising to the fore in my mind:

How long, Lord, will you look on? … LORD, you have seen this; do not be silent. (Psalm 35:17, 22.)
