Ya Gotta Go Your Own WayHello.  This is not Damien.  I’m his friend and next door neighbor.  He requested that I publish a journal to his DeviantArt account on his behalf.  He also instructed me not to pussy foot around the topic.  
A few weeks ago, Damien went to sleep and did not wake up in the morning.  There was no funeral, nor a service.  He was cremated and his ashes mixed with his dogs.  The combined remains were given to his niece.
Without getting sappy, I’d like to say a few words before leaving because I haven’t really had the opportunity to say just how wonderful he was to anyone other than his closest relatives.  Damien was, by far, one of the best people I knew.  He always had a kind compliment, a story of outrageous shenanigans, a listening ear, and a glass of whiskey.  You could count on him for anything and he’d drop everything to help someone out.
I miss him terribly, and hated holding this information back from hi

I'm a bit late to the gathering here, but I want to give a signal boost to this project on behalf of LadyLincoln and LungCancer-Awareness:

Lung Cancer Awareness: Finding HopeEvery year, we strive to find new opportunities make a difference! At: LungCancer-Awareness we hope to host a wonderful community project to uplift and inspire those around us. Each day, we hope to express understanding, love and hope for those fighting. It is not always easy to find our courage when facing the unknown – but we are all united here to help those facing this battle know that they are not alone. Those fighting against lung cancer (or any other cancers,) may have several unanswered questions and fears. No one taking this journey should ever have to face this ongoing battle alone, and this is where we come in: to show our love, support and to hopefully promote awareness.
LungCancer-Awareness: Connected by Hope

For those not familiar with this group and its purpose, we shall delve into that right now. Our group was created to bring awareness to a well-known cancer that ha


It's open to all art categories, and directly benefits the Lung Cancer Alliance.

I think that right now, it is critically important to find ways to help others, and/or to amplify the voices of others who are trying to do the same.

Be excellent to each other. :heart:

If you are doing Nanowrimo, and stopped because of the events of the last 24 hours, I get it. It's your call, and it's valid. But maybe the world needs you to write. Maybe now more than ever.
