To my niece Milah (and others)-
The world is not always like this. For all of the millions and billions of good people on this earth, it sadly can take only person, and action to remind us how dark our world can sometimes be. Hold on to the good things, and the good people in your life. The dark can be daunting, but hope can emerge again, if you allow it.
As to why bad things happen, I can offer no good explanation. There is never a good answer in times like this, no matter how much we wish there was.
