When I was on the board of the Secular Student Alliance, one of my fellow board members was Neil Polzin. Great guy, great activist. He got married in 2011 and everything appeared to be going pretty well for them. But earlier this month, his wife Lauren was a victim of a tragic explosion at her workplace.
Lauren’s still in the hospital. Alive. Getting surgery. Doing better. But recovery will take a while.
You’ve all donated for far less important reasons in the past so I hope we can push the fundraiser over the top.
