People often ask what the reasons are on why good people have to suffer. There can be many answers to that question, depending on the circumstances. For instance in the Greek tragedy “antigone”, the main character Antigone states that “ It was a brother, not a slave, who died” causing her to go against the King and burying her brother Polyneices (Sophocles, 1.1.517).
