I’d be curious to see how different religious leaders explain this. Sad, but I see it as just a random event which happened because randomness is part of the universe.
“MEXICO CITY – Five Mexican children were killed when a large metal cross they were praying at was struck by lightning in central Mexico, local media reported Monday.
Five children between 9 and 16 years old died and several others suffered burns when lightning struck a white-painted metal cross set on a hill in the town of Santa Maria del Rio early on Sunday, according to two newspaper reports.
?The lightning went straight into them and killed them instantly,? local Red Cross chief Eduardo Suarez told the daily El Norte.” – msnbc
