Today is a special day for Atheists, Agnostics, and Freethinkers.
For the first time, non-believers are descending upon the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to let our leaders know that we are here and we want representation.
Additionally, this day celebrates living a fulfilled life without beliefs in supernatural beings. It celebrates reality and the beauty contained within. It celebrates the clarity found in a rational worldview unsaddled by superstition and fear.
This day is also for those still grappling with the thought of “coming out” with their non-belief. This is a difficult position to be in, particularly for those raised with religious beliefs.
But you are not alone.
Brandi, one of our members, is at the Reason Rally and will be blogging a full report on this momentous event when she gets back.
In the meantime, here our a couple of pictures she sent:
