You’ve all heard that phrase “Heaven on Earth.” Well, as a resident of Heaven, I can say the converse is true up here – “Earth on Heaven.” I can only assume that makes little sense to you so let me explain. Whenever someone with a cool job (e.g. sports, entertainment) dies, people still on Earth say stuff like, “[the deceased musician] is playing in God’s band now,” “[that dead comedian] is up there in Heaven killing it in God’s comedy club” or “[the ex-NFL star] is starting on God’s football team.”
Well, let me tell you, those things are all true. God does have a band, a comedy club and sports leagues. But, here’s the crappy part for those of us who didn’t have cool jobs on Earth – God really does expect you to do the same job you did on Earth in Heaven.

I want to thank you for your essay, “Why I Want To Be a Fire Truck.” Truly, this was among the greatest papers ever to grace the halls of Clarkson Leadership Academy Prep and will inevitably join our pantheon of Very Special Essays.
You should be congratulated on your sense of stewardship. That you would risk your entire personhood to squelch mighty infernos only corroborates the vision and bravery I see day-to-day when you build your Lego towers to astonishing and dangerous heights.
To see such a young boy completely unafraid to transcend the metaphysical realm into a state of pure unconsciousness and abject humanity in favor of an existence of simple utility and predetermined purpose is a marvel to behold. In this, I believe you have conquered death for all time, which is a big accomplishment for someone your age. (more…)
