Michael was one of my best friends from University. He was one of the few people who understood when i walked away from Christianity and became a pagan. He was on the search himself, alhtough his took him the other way.
Michael was working as a volunteer for the Tong-Len project, supporting children in the slums in India. And now he has gone. All i can do is pray that he has gone to a better place, where he is safe and happy.
Although knowing Mike, he'd probably rather be here, so he could continue to make a difference. He wore this world lightly,m and used everything he had to try to make it better for others. He will be terribly missed.http://www.tribuneindia.com/2006/20061129/main9.htm
As I cannot bear to let his life go without it having made a difference to me, and to all the people he had yet to help, I am applying to be avolunteer for the same project. I have sent in a request to be a maths/english teacher for the Tong Len project over the summer holiday.http://www.tong-len.org/
If you can help, either by aiding the charity, or simply by adding your prayers to the those already ascending, please do.
Others have said it far better than i could. Please visit Alice
for more info and pictures.
I will post more later, when i feel i can.
