good post, you are right, it has nothing to do with good or bad, right or wrong, making choices or free agency, it just is.

God's role may not be what many people think it is.

Parents are not here to rescue children from the consequences of their mistakes. That isn't mercy or forgiveness or love, to prevent a child from learning.

Heavenly Father gave us free agency.

We know the difference between right and wrong. At least most of us do. In some cases people know the difference and do the wrong thing no matter what. Others, like the young man this case, is/are troubled or mentally ill and this happens. That doesn't excuse it but the human body isn't perfect. It's extremely sad, especially for the victims who died.

Xeno,

This world is not Heaven.  There is sin in this world.  Things will happen in this life that we don't understand.  God's heart is broken by this tragedy.  May all those affected know His comfort and peace.
