Why Do Bad Things Happen?

By Coach Muller • November 2, 2014

There are times in some people's lives when it seems like they were "dealt a bad hand." Why is it that sometimes people face unforeseeable disease, pain and death? We sometimes ask... why do bad things happen to good people? Why is it that a horrible and deadly sickness can strike a person while others live long and healthy lives? Simply put... why do bad things happen?

I recently read this following short illustration on positivethinking.in that I think answers this question in a simple way when this famous athlete, who was dying of a horrible disease himself, answered this question in a very simple way...

-----------------

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983.

From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: "Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease?"

To this Arthur Ashe replied:

"The world over - 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD 'Why me?' And today in pain I should not be asking GOD 'Why me?'

"Happiness keeps you Sweet... Trials keep you Strong... Sorrow keeps you Human."
