Almighty Creator of the Universe,

I awoke this morning to the horrific news of Jews slaughtered in a Jerusalem synagogue as they recited kaddish at the conclusion of an early shachris minyan.

Dear G-d – only you know exactly how many of us are saying kaddish and extolling your greatness day in and day out in memory of our beloved departed. Aren’t there enough mourners saying kaddish? Help me understand why must there be more children grieving for parents? Why must more Jews be brutally murdered? Why are more parents, children and spouses of terror victims needed to recite kaddish?

I do not question Your greatness. Nor do I doubt Your reasons.

I just do not understand.

Is there no end to Your people’s suffering?
