I think all people need to believe in something. For you it may be
need to believe that there is no God - and that is why God has not
protected and comforted you in your times of need. For me, I have
believe that there is a God, and that there is a plan for me and a
reason for all that happens.
I do not believe in organized religions, nor do I live by the "word"
the bible, but I do feel that there is something, somewhere helping
mewhen I need it most.
