Mothers and fathers and daughters and wives. Families. Children. Lost in an instant.
At the end of the day, this is why it’s so heart-wrenching. Why it’s unreal. Why it hurts so much. Why it’s inspired such an outpouring of grief. Why I can’t stop thinking about it, shedding tears over it, grieving, imagining the sheer tragedy of it all.
Death isn’t natural.
But it’s not forever. My faith tells me that. A Biblical hope tells me that. I will sit in that hope for all the families that lost someone dear to them. But I will also continue to grieve for them.
