Clark Adams: 1969-2007

Clark Adams: 1969-2007

The Humanist community mourns the death of Clark Davis Adams, a greatly influential freethought leader and activist, and a person of integrity and personal honesty who expressed his Humanism through a dedication to those he knew and a loyalty to the rights of all. … Though he is gone his legacy will live on. Clark Adams chose to end his own life. In a final statement, however, he expressed his optimism about a coming humanistic enlightenment. He will be deeply missed.

I'm deeply saddened that this gregarious, optimistic and outgoing atheist activist chose to end his own life. But as I've said in comments elsewhere, taking one's own life has to be seen as an act of ultimate courage and dignity. We can't know his reasons, but it is only important that Mr. Adams had them and they were valid to him. He will be missed.
