Goodbye Hitchens, We Selfishly Wish You Were Still Here

Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more. – Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011)

    Thank for this poignant, fitting quote. It’s perfect. I hope the world can now rid themselves of the silly atheists in foxholes adage. He was THE atheist in a foxhole. RIP Hitch. A sad day

    One of the two greats and I wish he could have been with us longer.
