I Don't Know
By Joseph J. Mazzella • August 27, 2014
Being an inspirational writer I get a lot of letters from readers asking a lot of questions that I can't answer. I have learned a lot of things in this life, but there are many things I don't know and may never know.
I don't know why people have to die. I don't know why a disease will take one person's life and spare another's. I don't know how some people can rationalize hurting and humiliating others. I don't know why some people start wars, crave power, and live in selfishness. I don't know why children are starving when there is enough in this world for everyone. I don't know why some people go through so much suffering in this life. I don't know why we hate. I don't know why we fear. I don't know why we kill. I don't know why we create so much pain, problems, and misery. I don't know why we divide this wonderful world up into us and them. I don't know why we choose to live in conflict instead of cooperation. I don't know why we blind ourselves to the fact that we are all brothers and sisters.
There are, however, a few things that I do know. I know that God loves us. I know that our Heavenly Father wants us all to live as one family in this world. I know that love is stronger than hate. I know that faith drives out fear. I know that death is only a doorway. I know that pain can bring growth. I know that hardship can make wisdom. I know that while this life can be a struggle it is worth it. I know that a far greater life awaits us too; a life full of love, joy, and light. I know that Heaven isn't just above us but also within us. I know that we can share our Heaven with every choice we make and everything we do. I know that when we LOVE we will have JOY. I may not know everything, but what I do know gives me hope for the future, for our world, and for us all.
