Commentary on the Colorado Tragedy

posted by Guy Finley

All human enacted tragedies, and the grief that follows in their wake, are regrettable; it’s almost unimaginable that any individual could be so inwardly corrupt as to deliberately wish to hurt anyone else, let alone a group of innocents. Heinous acts like the one that took place in the theater in Colorado (and that happen all over the world on a daily basis) should only help to prove that we all need to “wake up” to a certain fact of life:

The discovery that our beautiful world — with all of its beautiful relationships — is at best temporary (let alone subject to the destructive act of any maniacal, pain-ridden person who takes it upon himself to punish others), should only serve to strengthen our wish to transcend those parts of us that are identified with it (this world). Such a wish doesn’t deny, or in any way denigrate the suffering that seems so inherent in our physical existence, (and may those who have lost loved ones in this senseless crime be consoled). Rather, I believe it places this inevitable suffering — that we all must face — into the service of something higher, of something loving that wants us to know, in spite of temporary and confounding appearances, that God is good.
