Commemorating Events of our Lives

Please join if you wish to commemorate the events that shape your life.

 Whether it's a new baby, adoption, triumph over adversity, a medical diagnosis, a success, or a loss.  Celebrate, or grieve, the loss of a loved one, respected mentor, role model.  If it moves you, or you think it will move others, this is a good place to share the experience.

You can post either as a comment on the comment wall, or in a discussion.

So, I guess most of you here know that my dad died back in January of complications of Parkinson's disease. There have been times that have been rough since then, but I'd think it's all part of the…Continue

A loss, belatedly noted.

Ajita Kamal was a member of Nexus.  He was active in the atheist movement in India as well.  His Nexus group, Naturalism, still has 304 members.  His death was announced in Jan 2012, in India.  He was 33 years old.  I've done several web searches.  The cause of death was never determined, as far as I can tell on the internet.  He may have been murdered, or in an accident or altercation.  "Incident" is how the death is described.  His body was found in Tamil Nadu, in India.  He founded Nirmukta, a freethought / secular humanism group in India.  Kamal was an evolutionary biologist and musician.  


This is old news to some.   I was reminded of Mr. Kamal's passing when I saw in the sidebar that his group is still active. So Kamal's influence lives on.

As start for this group, which is intended to mark occasions both joyous and solemn, Kamal's passing is a thoughtful way to begin.

This year, of course, the freethought community lost Christopher Hitchens as well. Kamal was far less famous, but his activism is an example for us.
