Hi Nelson. Here is a story from Ireland which is going viral. It is about a child with stage 4 cancer and the song to raise funds for her. Elton John has gotten involved too. Whatever the ending it is still a good story that even floors this hardened Atheist. A different approach. You might like to add it to your Cancer Stories as I could not find a direct link. It would also (imo) make a good sunday school link for Empathy and Alturistic behaviour. I would not ask anyone directly to buy the song. btw if the child should die all or any remaining refunds are to be donated to research.
Embarrassingly, I have not had a chance to start any of those books yet. I've been working on writing at least 500+ words each day, so that's been keeping me busy. I also work for a testing company in the testing sector, so you can imagine that this is a very busy time of year for us. I'm sure I'll be done making excuses soon, let me see if I can think of one or two more...
Hey Nelson! I just attended the Think Atheist Baltimore meet up this evening. Morgan, Cara and Robert spoke so highly of you. Thank you for your contributions to this site. I gained much insight tonight and hope to be more involved :)
Hi Nelson. I belong to a number of educators' groups that highlight social justice issues; they include "Teaching Tolerance," "Teaching for Change," and "Rethinking Schools." Teaching Tolerance shared a link to an article about banned books in Tucson's schools, and it was while reading it that I stumbled across Think Atheist. I don't know how exactly but I think it was referenced in the article or on that page. Anyway I haven't had too much time to read what's hear but I'm interested in what I see so far! Best, Laura
