What about the utter hopelessness of NOT being reunited with someone you care about who is not a believer?
My thoughts on this are not based on religion, more on what I feel and what I've experienced. As I've said before, I don't know if there is a God or not, but I feel that there is something more than our senses tell us. I really want to believe that there is life-after-death because I have a really hard time accepting that I will never see my dad again. I don't belive in hell at all. I feel that life is a learning experience and that we are meant to reach an objective each time around. My uncles believe that we set up certain obstacles and challenges for ourselves before we come back. With all that stated, I accept the fact that I could be completely wrong and there could be nothing...just the end. But I hope for more...
