Which heaven is in the soil?

Was watching KTN news feature "The Inside Story", and heard just about the saddest thing I have heard in a long time.

The story is of a mother whose husband had been part of the Peace Keeping Mission in Sierra Leone. After the husband came back home he got sick with strange symptoms and died shortly after.

After her husband was burried her son asked her "Mum where has dad gone?" she answered by saying that dad has gone to heaven. Her son asked, "But mum, which heaven is in the soil?"

  1. Yes, true, especially when it comes to questions about life and the essence and meaning of our existance...just watched the movie "Patch Adams" on TV...I have watched it more than twice before but today it just left me with a lot of questions about how I have lived my life so far and has it had much meaning so far...but these questions are so difficult to answer on your own because the answers are often in the hearts of your loved ones...and you may neverknow just how much you mean/meant to them..... Thanks visiting Serina...looking forward to your next post
