The Diplomacy of Death
And the politics of life afterwards
Before we get started, I have to tell you two things:
I have a weird psychological relationship with death.
I have never told this story so openly to the world.
Ever since I was younger, I contemplated suicide for several reasons. Sometimes it was depression, other times it was curiosity about this “God” people talked about. More often, however, I simply wondered what it would be like to be dead; and the answer was never far away at any moment if I truly chose to seek the answer.
