I just can't make sense of this  
It's been a terrible week in Queensland, this week; firstly with the Dreamworld tragedy - which really hit home across Australia; I think nearly everyone who ever went to Dreamworld would have gone on that particular ride - and then yesterday with the senseless murder of the bus driver, not all that far from where I live. The first tragedy was a terrible accident but the second was so random; I can't fathom it at all. I just feel for the families in both incidents. Just terrible, sad events.
Current Mood: sadsad

I hadn't heard about the bus driver... Big big hugs to you all. Sometimes it's the very randomness that makes it seem even more terrible.

That's right, it's the randomness that makes it so hard to comprehend. There's nothing you can point to and say "oh that's why..." - not that anything would have made this okay - so there's no way to understand what motivated this. It's just horrible. I really feel for his family in India; he was due to fly home to be married in a few months' time.

Ah, there's no sense or reason to it - just a sad person doing something tragic, and probably as confused by it as the rest of us. I feel so sorry for everyone touched by it - nobody is born wanting to murder a stranger - stuff happens, and this is how it finishes. I always hope and pray that something positive somehow comes out of these things... but it's hard to see. Hugs again to you. ♥
