The meaning of life
I'd like to share this article with you. I don't know the man, but my mother, grandfather, and mother's cousin died from Lou Gehrig's disease, so it hits close to home. It's also the story of someone who fought through addiction and societal disapproval and found the central nugget of himself that really mattered. I hope you get something out of reading it.
