I think it was Jean Paul Sartre that sais "Hell is other people" that statement is even more interesting

"Without Jesus Christ the world would not exist, for it should needs be either that it would be destroyed or be a hell."

--Blaise Paschal

Just one person's opinion from a few centuries ago, but I find a deep wisdom in it, despite the fact that its overt religiosity might turn some off. I hear in it both an honest take on the reality of suffering in this world and also a strong measure of hope.

I don't think it's up to us to make earth heaven or hell (unless by 'making' we just mean which colored glass we're looking through at a given time), but rather we are to reach out and lift the eyes of those around us to hope...hope for human dignity...hope for a future...if such a hope is, in fact, to be found. But, like the words in "Walk On," hope comes from a "place that has to be believed to be seen."

There are more than a few hellish places on earth.

Can heaven exist while hell exists, or do they require eachother.
