Answer by Katherine Walker:

My mother used to tell me that when something went bad. I couldn't imagine God or his minions had time to spend orchestrating all these reasons and plans and then I discovered chaos theory and patterns and time travel, and I'd have to say everything may happen for a reason but like a Buddhist Koan, the reason is only to make you think of a reason you can accept — and go on with the banal meaningless of your life.
