Afraid to die? Hellya. I know that, no matter how bad anything gets, I could never commit suicide. I bitch about it alot, but really, I love being
human, being mortal- to have certain limits, to be able to walk down the street at night holding hands with someone and not know what the hell the
future holds, but to be happy anyway. Or to be alone, and feel despair, but know that if I try, I can make it better. To swear a lot. To be imperfect.
Because I guess it's not accually dying so much as what comes after. Ya know, going to hell/other sh*ty afterlife. Or going to heaven, and it being
all wierd and stuff. Heaven for me is living a good life. I'm Christian, but I really like what the Buddists and Hindus think about the afterlife- if
you didn't do so good as a human, you come back as a cow. After you die as a cow, you get to try again, and again, and eventually, after everything
you're supposed to do is fullfilled, you go to paridise or eternal peace. Sounds like a good deal to me.
I have no idea when the world will end- no time soon , I hope- but I think we'll go one of two ways.
1) We'll slowly drift apart, no one even knowing how interdependant humanity is until whatever fate is to befall us comes, and we'll end it each to
his own, or
2)We'll settle the stupid things, admit our flaws, and unite against whatever is to bring earths doom even if we can't win, and go down "with a
smoking gun in our hand."
