    I believe that bad things happen to good people. Better yet, I believe that terrible things happen to the most innocent of people. Nothing bad ever happened to Hitler; the millions of innocent jews he killed did not deserve their gruesome deaths. Orphans as young as children do not deserve a life without a parent to guide them through it. A lot of times I ask myself, Why? Why do things like this happen to good people, why don 't I ever see bad people suffering? A lot of times I turn to God and ask him this rhetorical question which I know will have no answer to. It 's hard not to blame someone when such tragedy occurs. Unfortunately, I admit that I do blame God sometimes for tragedies and, unfortunately, I have many stories to base my belief on, but here is just one of them that affects me most. A while ago when I was just 2 months old my brother Ilan, an angel gifted from God to my family passed away. A gift to short to be returned. A terrible tragedy can 't even describe this horrific event. When my mother gave birth to me it was the happiest day in her and…

    Why does God let bad things happen to good people? A question that will be asked until we meet our Father in heaven and get to ask Him directly. I think we need to unpack a few things in attempt to answer that question. First, where did evil come from and when did it begin? Has there always been evil in this world? Did God bring evil into this world or did we? To get a baseline for this question I think we need to establish “bad things” and where it derived from. Secondly, do we have freewill or…

    A few extra things that I can mention about my overall time spent at the ASANTE hospital is that it is very difficult. There are times where I did not know what to do, or who to call to fix certain problems and/or to get extra assistance. For instance, I had an incident where someone threw up all over outside of the South Lobby where I was located, encountered a disfunction with one of the toilets here that had people coming to me over and over to complain to and many angry people who took their…

    There was a time when I was doing exactly what I wanted with my life, and then life threw a curveball. I worked at an awesome hair salon, which was number one in the city, and I was on my way to becoming a licensed hair stylist. I had it made. Sometimes it seemed surreal how well things were going and I thought I was blessed to be given the opportunity I was presented. It obviously turned out that it was too good to be true. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, I had to leave that wonderful…
