Bob Barney_ Why Does God Allow Tragedy
Hi Bob Barney here for the plaintruthtoday.
Today's story is tragedy.
A little boy is killed by a deranged monster, or some small child drowns in their family swimming pool. A soldier escapes death in Iraq only to come home and get them self shot in the streets of Chicago.
Recently, while looking up an online website which records Vietnam War deaths by the city in the state; Where they came from, I found the only guy died from my hometown in that terrible war. He was only one. His name is Robert Barry and he was a lance corporal. He went by the name Bobby Barry and the article described him as a nice, but tough kid, that I join the Marines because he had a fight with his girlfriend, and he died on October 12, 1966. I was only 11 years old he was only 19.
I don’t know what shocked me so much about reading this. I didn’t know him, I probably never even met him, but he is the only one that died from my town in a war that killed so many guys. Yes, he died in a miserable place far away from home. Where a bunch of evil and greedy politicians sent him to fight in a war they never even intended to win.
Yeah, he had a fight with his girlfriend and she probably blamed herself for the rest of her life for his death.
Why did he die? Greed. It’s all about the American military industrial complex making their money. Building arms of war, they get rich, along with their allies in politics.
Many often wonder how these things can happen in the modern world. People say, "how can I loving God allow such tragedies?"
