Life sucks. How many people genuinely believe otherwise? By people I mean adults; kids and adolescents can naively believe so.

I’ve never had a near death experience, but when my grandfather died I had a dream right before I woke up that my grandfather was young like his old navy photo and in this massive white void above my line of sight. Below my grandmother was her normal self and crying. Before I woke up he just looked at me and smiled. I woke up and went to brush my teeth when the phone rang and I knew he had died before the phone was answered. A few moments later I heard my mom crying. It was my grandmother calling to say that he died. So, around the time I was having the dream was when my grandmother realized he had passed away.

I’m mostly agnostic, but there was something very surreal and lucid about that experience. It’s why I’m not a full blown atheist.
