Response is it.

This just confirmed my normal thinking that yes stuff happens, what will I do about it, and how can I respond in a way it glorifies my G-d?

Facing daily challenges by using the kapora formula!

What a grand opportunity Mr. Rothenberg has presented to us! We often allow our trivial, daily challenges to drain so much of our precious energy. Following his suggestion to ask Hashem to use our minor punishments for kaporas for other sins can provide so much comfort and a reduction of the stress about which many of us kvetch.. Thank you, Mr. Rothenberg.

accident or Divine, there is a lesson we can learen

Both the Rambam [Guide] and the Ramban [Genesis 18:19] teach that accidents happen. Whether a tragedy is by Divine purpose or by chance, there is always a Divine lesson to be learned from every event.
