You're right. Bad things do happen to us. Prayer doesn't work. If you have someone who you love, just being close to them can help. Sometimes venting can help, and sometimes the internet is a place to vent (like here). My dog is my best solace, better than my human companion. He knows when I feel bad and he stays close when that happens.
Sometimes it helps to build a community of like-minded people. If there is nothing local, Unitarian fellowships are a route that some use. You don't have to beleive in gods to be Unitarian. I did that for a while, but I'm too antireligious for it now, and some of the fellowships are too woo-woo or mimic religion, so I quit. Every UU fellowship is different, though, so it might be an option.
When someone dies, I like to plant a tree. For some reason it gives me comfort.
Good luck to you Kimberlee.
