If you know how I feel....

  • I know how you feel.
    • (Was your child murdered?)
  • You shouldn’t feel that way.
    • (Tell me how I should feel; maybe I can make myself feel the way you think I should.)
  • It was God’s Will.
    • (If you’re so in touch with what God’s will is, ask him “why?”)
  • You have got to get on with your life.
    • (If I get up, I’m getting on.)
  • You’ve got to be strong.
    • (Why?)
  • God took him or her.
    • (No, my child was murdered by an evil person. He was not taken up from a mountain top in a cloud.)
  • God needed him or her.
    • (God doesn’t need him, if so he could make another one. I can’t, I needed him; he was my life.)
  • You should be over that by now.
    • (There is no getting over the loss of your loved one by violence.)
  • You can have other children.
    • (Get a grip.)
  • God is testing you.
    • (Well, I’m sure I failed his test and he’s failed mine, too. Does that matter?)
  • Good will come from it.
    • (How could anything good ever come from such evil?)
  • It’s for the best.
    • (Anyone that tells you it’s for the best that your child is murdered isn’t dealing with a full deck. Tell them to get the hell away from you.)
