Since April 13, 2017, I've had three illnesses that were (and still are to some degree) life-threatening conditions. I've spend more time in the intensive care unit in the hospital than I care to remember.
In my periods of hospitalization and revovery, I've had ample time to consider life, living and death. During these times of reflection and self-evaluation, I am finding comfort, happiness and even joy in my humanist-athiest beliefs and philosophy.
Never once did the possibility of a god enter my mind. It is the efforts and help from mankind that got me through the dark an pain-filled days ... not a god.
I have one life and I am responsible for making every day and deed count for the betterment of humanity, even if they go unnoticed and are individually small tokens of my humanist-athiest beliefs.
