Beyond comprehension

After watching some of the coverage about Charleston tonight, John and I were talking about this and other mass shootings. I guess we all know people who hate, although we don’t really understand that. John thinks people hate because they’re afraid.

But mostly we cannot understand what could possibly be going on in somebody’s head to go into a church, pray with people for an hour, and then start shooting and kill nine worshippers.

The commentators and survivors all say they want to “make sense” of this act. I don’t see how it can ever “make sense”.

It’s beyond comprehension.
