  • Logged in to tweet my distaste for professional athletes who believe in a God who helps them win football games while children starve, wars rage, and cancer wins.

    That's when I found out Hitch was dead.

    And then I remembered:

    "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

    The truth is - God or no God; Paradise, Hell, or Nothing - death never wins where life was beautifully lived.

    Goodbye, Hitch.
