I am not trying to be cute here but my answer is "Who Cares".  I cannot affect what happens after my life on earth so why waste a minute of time thinking about it.  What I try to do is appreciate the life that I have on earth right now.  I think that every day I wake up is a gift from God.  I want to make the most of the life he has given me and not worry about something I cannot stop from happening.
