i can't muster the wit it would take to pay proper respects to someone who had an understanding so vast, complexities so deep, a command on the language he wrote in so precise, and sympathies so great; but i can continue to seek truth and try to be courageous and true to understanding reality.
humanity lost a bright light this week. i hope death brought a man in agony relief. i hope to be more like christopher hitchens was in life and in death.
i am truly mourning.
