The secular world has lost one of our most distinguished activists.
If there is such a thing as a superstar of the freethought movement, it was certainly Bobbie Kirkhart. She was our president in the early 90s and worked with such groups as Atheists United, Camp Quest, and the Secular Coalition for America. She was truly an atheist icon whose eloquence and unshakeable commitment to reason and science influenced so many of us.
She left her mark on everyone with whom she came into contact and will be sorely missed, but her contributions to the freethought movement will endure. We are in a better place today because of her.
