Word Count: 268
If you could only carry one memory with you into the afterlife, which would you choose?
None. I would not take a single memory or any other number of occasions that I can remember. In death, while I may be moving on in ways brought about by my own faith and religion, I will not be taking things along with me. In that sense, I include memories and do not limit that statement to material goods or other such things. When I die, I will not be needing these things, as such. Even if I did, I would not be needing them as much as I do now.
As a scientist and as a follower of a Christian religion, the ideas that I have been taught often conflict. One set I have learnt in faith and the other I have learnt in places that teach not religion, but scientific facts. Although I can not and will not take one side or the other on the matter of whom and what is right and whom and what is wrong. I will do my job, I will use science and my mind to solve the crimes that I am given to solve, to the best of my ability. When I can not go any further, or it appears that way, I will keep trying. At the end of my week, if possible, I will go to church and I will worship. If the need ever arises and it is a suitable thing to be praying for, then I will pray for it, whether it is someone, somebody or something.
When I die, that will be it for me and I will be dead, end of discussion.
