Wow, I just finished your story, and I'm amazed. It seems us atheists from the north have the worst luck in the world... I don't have a full story as you do, just a brief overview in the comments on "Whose life sucks and why? Give me your perspective!" Also, just for clarification, I'm from Michigan, but right now I'm stuck in Arkansas for a little while. Glad to make your acquaintance, and I hope your problems work themselves out well. ~Maggie
Thanks for reply Joann: Well, you are a very good writer, and you could do it if the situation was ever right. I hope that things are better with your family; but if not, its more their loss. Buy the way, that's my constant little buddy, BeBe, in my picture. Glad to mke a friend, I'm new here. Rob
Thanks for your story on the "My Story" thread. It's quite different from mine (ardent skeptic before teenage) but very interesting! (I agree that it would make a great book!) There is more than one pathway to enlightenment. And hey, we're all swimming upstream to get there! Rob
I wanted to send you a PM, but I can't until we're friends :). Your blog was extremely moving and struck a personal chord with me. It's amazing how similar our stories are. Thanks for posting that. If you PM me your address, you can have a free Learn to Think Atheist bracelet if you want it!
