Today’s theme prompt from the Dailypost.wordpress.com crowd raises the debate as to whether everything happens for a reason. This question comes in the wake of a total meltdown of one of my closest friends. Her entire world has crumbled over the past few months; a once successful business has turned to disaster in the blink of an eye. Her beautiful holiday home has been overtaken by drug-dealing squatters who have gutted the house completely – doors and windows have been removed and all her furniture has disappeared. The police are powerless and she must resort to dealing with a shady character, whom she will have to pay to go and forcibly remove the squatters.
I can’t begin to describe her anguish yesterday. All she could say, repeatedly, was WHY?
I don’t have the answer. Life’s just unfair sometimes.
