There are some stumblebums in there too, I’m sure. It’s a good thing the kid has seizures in comparison to cancer. There’s a lot of sadness and crud and terror in the world and you’re right, we should mourn those things. But let’s praise God’s goodness, too.
I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

Great news! Little boy doesn't have cancer! Stanford's given him meds for seizures and he's coming back to school! :D
Thanks be to God.

Yes, and in the end, hopefully, with a thankful heart
