Have you ever been so lost?

Is life meant to be understood? Or are we supposed to only live our lives until it's time for us to die without any understanding of events that occur? I aks these questions only because of what was brought to my attention yesterday.

Our CEO told us that the man and woman involved in the train accident were related to his previous landlord. The news articles wrote that they were out here visiting family, meaning the man who lost his wife is brothers with the landlord. Not only that but, the man who lost his wife also recently completed his chemo treatments and that was why they decided to visit family here in California.

All I can do is shake my head in disbelief whenever I think about it. I always believe that 'everything happens for a reason' but this honestly makes me question the statement. What could possibly explain why this man lost his wife in a tragic accident not long after he completed chemo? Again, I am lost.

I cannot find any way of understanding the situation. Nor can I understand the small degree of separation between us, that man, our CEO, and the landlord/man's brother. It's mind-boggling. It really is.
