There are many views of what happens after we die, and while we might argue about what happens, there is something we should all believe in common: that our life on Earth matters. While the book The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom does show a view of life after death, that is not the important part of the book. Instead, the lessons the story tries to get across in the most important thing.
While this book may argue that those lessons can be learned after death, I feel great lessons should be learned in life. Everything is connected in a way, and you do not really know the entire story are some of the lessons to be learned. Your religious views do not matter here but do come in with an open mind to what is being taught. There is a sequel that I plan on getting around to within the next couple of weeks, but I wonder what lessons await me.
