Hi, everyone.

I've been in contact with James. He has arrived in his new home country, in Europe, safe and sound. Until his asylum case has been heard, he can't have too much of a presence online. He wanted me to let you all know that he is doing well and that he sends his regards. He said to also tell you that Secular World magazine may be interviewing him for an article. As for now, he cannot say much. We're also not sure how the funding for him will go, at this point. He has to okay everything with his case worker.

We're going to have a donation site started soon. From what I can gather, James is going to buy his own plane ticket and follow through with his initial plan to move to another country in the West, were some of his mother's family live. He may still need support, so we're still going to raise funds for his moving and settling in.

He's still under the effects of the pills, but he's said he will get a ticket when he's more coherent.

What a relief! Am so glad he is, as his name implies, a phoenix - able to recover from this crash and burn. I hope he has come back stronger than ever!  I have read some of his book, and can not begin to understand what he is going through. It makes me so angry.  How can I (and other members of this community who want to do so) help?

James is alive. He just woke up from being passed out for two days. Some of us are getting funds and plans together to help get him someplace safe. He's still out of it, so he's not really told me much more. I'm just very happy to see that e-mail in my inbox, let me tell you!!

I'll try to keep y'all abreast of the situation as it develops. Might have to keep some aspects mum, depending on James' wishes. But... He's alive. We're going to see what we can do.

Phoenix, you and I have never met, but I have read your words, and shared your viewpoints.  You matter.  I can not hear your video, but I don't need your voice.  Your eyes tell me what the video can not say.  Please, reach out to friends, reach out to strangers.  You are important.  I know life sucks, especially if your views are different from many others. But there are people, many people, who share your views, who share your problems, who care. I care.  Everyone on this site cares. Don't give up on you, please.
