Word on the Street: Mortality

“Do you ever think about your own mortality and about what happens after death?”

Nick, 33
"I don't really think about it. I guess death is just like a nice long sleep with no dreams. I don't think anything really happens to us."
Matt, 22
"Well, I don't really spend too much time thinking about it. I am Catholic, but I'm not really practicing right now. But I would like to think that there is a place for everybody, whether they have done right or wrong."
Sandy, 21 (photo not available)
"I guess sometimes I think about it. But I don't practice a particular religion, so I don't have any like, Catholic ideals about what happens afterwards, I just assume that something does."
Andrew, 25
"No, not really. For me, I think if I died I reckon I would go to heaven, basically that's it. I don't know what to expect, but I think it exists."

Nicoli, 20
"Yeah, I actually do think about it. I wonder that all the time; what's the afterlife and what's the experience after that? Is there really a heaven; is there really a hell? Or do we get to start again with another life, or go to hell to pay for the bad things that we've done? That comes to my mind sometimes, but I don't have any answers. I don't want to think about it that much because you will die eventually, and I want to live my life.
