A year ago, today, the essay was written. I thought that this would be the perfect time to revisit the essay and contemplate the ripples it created.
1. The essay post generated 200+ comments.
2. I know of at least twenty people who took the time to write, over the course of the year, and share how the essay led them to atheism or, at the very least, made them scrutinize their behavior toward and stereotypes of atheism. That, in itself, is probably the greatest gift. My daughter has been taught that she has the power to affect change. That power has given her immeasurable confidence. For that, I owe thanks to the community that has supported her here.
3. It's been shared on too many sites to count AND has inspired a few youtube videos.
4. It made me get more involved with this blog and the atheist community in general. It also led Jack Jackyl to our family and we spawned the podcast.
So, in honor of the anniversary of its anniversary...I'd like to ask if it affected you? If so, please share your story.
