Podcast: Near-Death experiences by Sandy Ong is very interested to hear the people that she interview and listen to their experiences makes one know that many people have had near-death experences; something many do not talk about in the open to the world. I believe their coming back to share their experiences let us know that their is a place we do go after we die. Their choosing to return to earth life could not be an easy decision but agree that those who do return to earth for a reason. Yes, there are so many things that science cannot prove yet a being of the unknown is there that place of beauty many say having near-death experience is real for those who have experienced it. Thank you for sharing your near-death experience for it makes me believe this is a place after death.
