...what next?

We keep asking why, but we don't need to know why something happened; we can't use that knowledge to go back in time and stop it.  And the terrifying truth is that we can't gather enough clues to know how to prevent it happening the next time...The only useful question in such a time is not "Why?" but "What next?"  What should I do next?  What should be my response to this ugly event?  How can I bring the best out of it?  How can God bring Resurrection out of it?
