Got this in a email. Don't know anything about the story of the kid, but I liked that rest.
Heaven as written by a 17 Year Old Boy
This is excellent and really gets you thinking about what will happen in Heaven.
17-year-old Brian Moore had only a short time to write something for a class. The subject was what Heaven was like. "I wowed 'em," he later told his father, Bruce. It's a killer. It's the bomb It's the best thing I ever wrote." It also was the last.
parents had forgotten about the essay when a cousin found it while cleaning out
the teenager's locker at Teays Valley High School in Pickaway County
such an impact that people want to share it. "You feel like you are there," Mr.
Moore said.. Brian Moore died May 27, 1997, the day after Memorial Day. He was
driving home from a friend's house when his car went off Bulen-Pierce Road in
Pickaway County and struck a utility pole. He emerged from the wreck unharmed
but stepped on a downed power line and was electrocuted.
" The Room.."
In that place between wakefulness and dreams, I found myself in the room. There were no distinguishing features except for the one wall covered with small index card files. They were like the ones in libraries that list titles by author or subject in alphabetical order. But these files, which stretched from floor to ceiling and seemingly endless in either direction, had very different headings.
As I drew
near the wall of files, the first to catch my attention was one that read "Girls
I have liked." I opened it and began flipping through the cards. I quickly shut
it, shocked to realize that I recognized the names written on each one. And then
without being told, I knew exactly where I was. This lifeless room with its
small files was a crude catalog system for my life. Here were written the
actions of my every moment, big and small, in a detail my memory couldn't match.
A sense of wonder and curiosity, coupled with horror, stirred within me as I
began randomly opening files and exploring their content. Some brought joy and
sweet memories; others a sense of shame and regret so intense that I would look
over my shoulder to see if anyone was watching.
To be prepared for War is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace.
