    Dearest Friends,

    I am writing to you to ask for your help in shedding light on a perplexing situation I find myself contemplating.

    I have selected you as a group to aid me because you have known me for at least a couple years and I value your opinion.
    Your religious experiences are varied and that is important to the problem I am faced with.

    Over the years, we have all observed the seemingly random factors that affect all of our lives, sometimes
    without apparent rhyme or reason.

    We have seen some marriages dissolve over nothing and others grow stronger under adverse conditions.
    We have seen fate play a role in who survives critical illnesses and who succumbs to them.

    We have all seen good people suffer great misfortunes while some people of low character thrive.

    In our lifetime, we have seen Churches and Religious institutions all around the world become revised,
    televised, energized and even scandalized.

    We are all well aware that a higher power has control of nearly all things.

    Personally, I have stood in the doorway of a 7/11, amid a shootout between the police and a gunman
    and walked away unscathed.

    On a golf course, I saw a lightning bolt strike a man dead while those of us nearby where untouched.

    We all watched as Hurricane Katrina ravaged some areas of the coast and left other nearby homes standing intact.

    The enormity of these random and seemingly unfair applications of good or bad fortune is at the core of my dilemma.

    I have studied sacred writings of all major religions searching for an answer, and now I pose the question to you:

    What I cannot fathom is, why the highest power in this universe would take Anna Nicole from us and leave Hillary behind....

    All I know is that some days you are the bug...other days, you are the windsheild. Personally, I could live without either one.

    I couldn't possibly begin to explain that one either. We'll never know I guess.

    The answer lies with the bearded lady and the lizard boy on Coney island!

    They told me that in a dream, Dru:lol:
