Christopher Hitchens One Year On

The video is a tribute played at the 2012 Global Atheist Convention. This Saturday marks one year since he finally succumbed to cancer.

Will always remember talking to a fellow volunteer at the International Atheist Alliance Conference, just outside Washington DC in 2007 about what we were looking forward to. The main person I really wanted to meet up with was Christopher Hitchens, I admired his writing and the viv and verve of his oratory, and looked forward to him signing my book later.

A voice from behind said “I will sign that for you now if you like”.

Not often you get to tell someone that you admire their writings. Grateful that I had that chance, and that he took the time to hang out with us.

All the blogs featuring Hitch can be found here.
