The world feels a little lonelier today with news of Christopher Hitchens death from complications of esophageal cancer at the age of 62. His quick wit, incredible intellect and strong convictions caused everyone in his path to up their game. Rigorously questioning the intellectual integrity of various beliefs and mindsets, he forced us to examine our assumptions, influences and life philosophies. In Christendom, we are much better thinkers because of what he brought to the public forum. He left behind a wife, three children, and many, many friends and colleagues. I'm sure those who knew him personally are feeling the void this huge personality has left behind. Hitch, I pray that at the end your convictions were overwhelmed by an encounter with Love & Light Himself.
