Could take many novels to cover that one!
I'll try in a few lines, not to answer it,
but merely to express an opinion.
I doubt life hands out good and bad in any form of
discrimination. We probably have a tendency to only "care" about bad things happening to "good" people.
I think we could also say to some degree that all
we presume to be bad, may also have ways of being
good for us.
In a sense, it would be easier to label someone a "good person" AFTER they have shown how they dealt with the "bad things" in their lives.
Could flower you up with the old "How could we know good if there was no bad." or "How could we know pleasure if there was no suffering."
But doubt you, I, or many of us in here care to hear simple answers like that.
Fact is, suffering IS part of life in general,
so.....it happens to everyone.
Personally, I'm glad there is no distinction to whom bad things fall on, who would be in charge of the list?
