Since at least January of 2008, we have all seen daily television commercials for the annual "Avon Walk for Breast Cancer." One young lady, walking in memory of her Mother, who was a breast cancer victim, laments, "I really didn't have any say so about my Mother's death, walking in her memory these past two days, I believe I've finally had my say." This young woman regretted loosing her Mother to breast cancer in similar fashion as Peter did not want to think about Jesus having to suffer pain and death.

So often when we lose a loved one through sickness and death or have to deal with the reality of our own suffering, pain, and death, we are tempted to lash out at God, point our finger at Him, blame Him, and say, "God, You are totally unfair. Why are you making this happen to us, to me?"
