A spiritual response to accidents

It's generally believed that accidents are an inevitable part of life. But do we have to accept this premise and its consequences?

Can accidents be prevented? Can the effects of accidents be turned around? I've thought about this many times when coming upon the scene of an accident, especially when there were serious injuries or loss of life. Surely such tragedies don't need to happen!

As a child I learned that God is Love; yet I was also taught that there is evil, too, and that you have to take the bad along with the good. Many times I heard, "That's just the way life is." Somehow I just couldn't reconcile the two opposite points of view. I just couldn't believe that a good God would allow bad things to happen to His children.
