Life has both joy and sorrow, sometimes in regard to the same things. Joy is the most important and sorrow only exists because of joy. Evil can only exist because of good. All evil is the loss of a good thing. Evil is not a thing in itself. ..For instance...someone dies..the sorrow of their death is sorrow over the cessation of their life. First, they had to live. A child is neglected, physically and emotionally: that evil is the non-existence of the good which should have existed, the good of love and care. Despite all bad things, we exist. How amazing! If you lose someone, remember that somewhere, they still exist. If they die, they still exist. God is merciful in that.
