-- The elephant in the room when it comes to talking about death is that when people say something like "He's no longer with us." The remaining question is, "Well, where did he go?" It's nice to think there's a heaven, or a system that somehow allows us to see each other in another life, but I wonder deep down if we can truly believe that. The thing I forget is that every day we are alive, living and breathing, we are in heaven.
This life we have on earth, it is heaven. And yes, awful, horrendous things happen and most of the time we complain like we're in hell, but the only proof I've ever had of a God existing has been through my experiences with other people.--
