I Loved This Show!
8 January 2018 | by RockoffSee all my reviews

To be clear. I do not practice religon in anyway, nor do i condem it, if you are religious and that is helping you in living a better and happier life, then I'm HAPPY for you, you found something in your life that gives you comfort and makes life a little easier :)

That's what a want for all humans on this planet.

Look, set aside race, religon, jobs, economi, borders etc etc. IT IS HARD BEING A HUMAN BEING, it really really is. Where ever you grow-up or end up.

Look, I try being a good person, i'm not racist, or sexist, If I see something wrong or someone being treated wrong in front of my eyes I intervene, I treat everyone the same until proven otherwise, I have no anger in my heart. I get angry sometimes, I party and hang out with my friends, go to work every day, working generally sucks, but I do it anyway,

seeing people happy is a great feeling, seeing people sad or worse is very very unpleasant.

I did not learn this in a book. I learned it by interacting with all kinds of people through out my life, and just a being part of this world.

Morgan Freeman, is openminded, kind, and respectful in all his encounters with people from all walks of life. WHEN you act this whey torwards people you can ask the heavy questions, the sensitive questions, and get true and honest answer in return.

THE REASON for this is because the question is comming from the right place. And Morgon Freeman does this BRILLIANTLY, he is informed and insightful, and conveys his questions as a true getlemen and a class act all the way.

This is a really interesting documentary on the human condition and our ways of dealing with Prelife - Life - Living - Death - The Afterlife.

To be honest, I don't care what happens after I die. It does not scare me nor does it please me. It is what it is, and it happens when it happens, and I'm OK with that.

Rated it 9/10
