The answer is very simple. God did not allow and does not allow any tragedy of any sort to happen. Tragedies happen because Human Beings make them happen. Tragedies happen because Human Beings cause them to happen. There are thousands of reasons people decide to do bad things or cause horrific tragedies to happen. God is not one of them.

As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way?
