Sometimes when faced with objective evil, all we can do is hope and pray.
"But I know we have the promise of the resurrection, and I am sure that all those little humans are at rest in paradise, awaiting that day when their humanity and ours is fully and finally restored."
I will just requote what she said. Come Lord Jesus.
