I remember once talking to my friend about his disabled cousin. He was confined to a wheelchair and couldn't even speak. My friend wondered why a God would allow such a thing to happen to a soul. I pointed out that maybe his soul has endured such a life to teach other souls unconditional love so perhaps he isn't a disabled victim of a cruel world, maybe in reality he is a hero, giving to others selflessly. Just my take on why some innocents might suffer.
