What do you say to a child when they ask, "What happens after I die?"

I began this article from a memory with my daughter when she was a child herself. I believe this is an important and eternal question that all people have to confront at various ages in life. This is an issue where there is not a clear cut answer. It is a gray issue. Sometimes we find ourselves in the gray zone when it comes to thorny issues of religion and mortality. Tell me what you think.

I love this quote from your post on what happens after death:

I tried to tell her that in Judaism we do believe in a hereafter. Yet our tradition emphasizes that the real issue is how we live our lives. That is what God wants most of all from us -- to live a life of holiness by following God's teachings.

Indeed, our tradition is about how e comport ourselves while physically on this earth.
