Leukemia

I have not posted for many months.  In December of 2011 I was diagnosed with leukemia and spent four months in the hospital undergoing numerous chemotherapy treatments.  I also ended up having to receive a bone marrow transplant from a twenty-year-old man, who I hope to meet when it is permitted.  I am still recovering from my brush with death, and I am doing well.  I was not inclined to do much of anything in the cyberworld during this time.

I think most of my main ideas have been lovingly expressed in previous posts.  My marination in mortality left me more convinced that there is something amazing waiting for us after death.  I don't pretend to know it, but I do believe it.  I spoke to many religious and non-religious individuals during my stay in the hospital, and, for me, deism just seems to be the closest thing to the truth.

And if leukemia couldn't kill me, then political correctness never will.  I encourage you to show courage in the face of Leftist intimidation and insanity.  I believe that we will be rewarded for fighting for right against wrong.  We will be rewarded for fighting superstition and unreason, for supporting those who fight religious oppression in the Islamic world and elsewhere.

Being face to face with death is a damn heavy thing, and I don't wish to do it for a long time.  But prepare yourself!  You are radically alone in its presence.
