I’ve been watching the news this morning.

As I try and make sense of what's going on thousands of miles away, I find myself praying intently for the families of those who were targeting in yesterday's well coordinated terror attack in Mumbai India. 

I'm certainly not buying into the sensationalism the news is trying to turn this story into.  But the fact of the "story" is…there are people involved here. 

People who will never see their mom or dad again.
People who have been injured for life.
People who were just walking through daily life, and then faced this horrible action for NO REASON.

And it brings me back to asking silly questions like Why?

Why do people find solace in the fact they can blow up a hotel or a hospital?
What do these people have to gain by flexing their muscles of terror that seems to be like an annoying bug on the armpit of the world?

I don't get it.

I've spoken to international leaders.
I've been in the presence of religious experts.
I've even tried to work this into the bigger spiritual problem of evil.

But it just doesn't make sense.

I'd love to hear what you think, as I'm trying to develop a way to understand this kind of behavior.

Why do people do this?

AND….

What do you think it's going to take to rid the world of this senseless killing?

Let me know what you think
