Being previously unenlightened to his work, I feel utterly devastated at his recent death. My only consolation is knowing I have much reading to do and much to discover about Hitchens, his works are a new (to me) frontier to explore.
I aim to fill this blog with my own content to cover my view of what it is to be a single member of a larger local and global community. I always strive for reason and the 'middle road' - extreme discussion is educational, extreme action is abhorrent. I hope my essays will adequately communicate my views and if I could be a shadow of what Hitchens was, then I would surely have reached a height I have previously felt out of reach.
