RIP Christopher Hitchens

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 18, 2011, 2:17 PM


:bulletred:R.I.P Christopher Hitchens 1949 - 2011. Last Friday he lost his battle with cancer but even in his weakened state he never let his work falter or slow, even till the very end. He was one of my heroes and I am sure this feeling is shared by many. I will miss his brilliant mind and my condolences to his family.

R.I.P Christopher Hatchens, he'll live in our hearts.

It's kinda scary that you wrote this on Death Note skin...

This is the first acknowledgement I've seen about this topic on DA. It seems like no one knows who he is, or even cares.
Anyway, he was a brilliant man. Some people dislike him because of his bluntness, but he shed light on both the ignorance and the beauty of the human race. He was the product of billions of years of natural selection and he damn well acted like it.

It is sad that he is gone, but I do not understand why he is so important since he criticizes Mother Teresa, one of the greatest saints and humanitarians of the 20th century.

He is important because he stands up for what he believes in, and I agree with most of his views and so do many others.

I don't really know much about Mother Teresa but I am sure he wouldn't criticise her without a good reason.

I think he first criticized her based on this: (Wiki quote) He argues that Teresa's own words on poverty proved that her intention was not to help people, citing a 1981 press conference in which she was asked: "Do you teach the poor to endure their lot?" She replied: "I think it is very beautiful for the poor to accept their lot, to share it with the passion of Christ. I think the world is being much helped by the suffering of the poor people."

I'm not really going to say rest in peace due to the irony of that statement but...

May he be secure in knowing that his words are not lost and that he has inspired so many wonderful things, I am sure that he lived a fulfilling life.

Cancer sucks. One of my close friends (only 15) died from cancer. Not only that, but this was his second time dealing with it.
