> I was extremely upset by the lady in Texas who drowned all of her kids -- those kinds of things are enough to put your "faith" into agony, but I believe suffering does end and then ultimately there is peace and bliss. If we weren't meant for peace and bliss why do we (at our best) always go toward it? (Only someone really demented in the head would move away from it.)

WAIT, which part do you mean is horrible, Ella? The horrible part I meant was what the lady in Texas did. And soon after that came 9/11.
I can't even imagine a fit punishment for the perpetrators.
But I don't know if you meant that you thought it was horrible that I look for some kind of resolution to all the pain and suffering of this world -- I do believe that we (our souls) find eventual peace, who knows in what state. That doesn't mean I think those kind of crimes serve any purpose, I don't think anything good came of it all.
