 Why Did God Create Atheists?
 There is a famous story told in Chassidic literature that addresses this very
 question. The Master teaches the student that God created everything in the
 world to be appreciated, since everything is here to teach us a lesson
 One clever student asks What lesson can we learn from atheists? Why did
 God create them?"
 The Master responds "God created atheists to teach us the most important
 lesson of them all-the lesson of true compassion. You see, when an atheist
 performs and act of charity, visits someone who is sick, helps someone in need
 and cares for the world, he is not doing so because of some religious teaching
 He does not believe that god commanded him to perform this act. In fact, he
 does not believe in God at all, so his acts are based on an inner sense of
 morality. And look at the kindness he can bestow upon others simply because
 he feels it to be right
 This means, the Master continued "that when someone reaches out to you for
 help, you should never say T pray that God will help you. Instead for the
 moment, you should become an atheist, imagine that there is no God who can
 help, and say I will help you

Dad, Family, and Fire: Meghan McCain @MeghanMcCain I love you forever - my beloved father @SenJohnMcCain My father, United States Senator John Sidney McCain III, departed this life today. I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning. In the thirty-three years we shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and supported me in all things. He loved me, and I loved him. He taught me how to live. His love and his care, ever present, always unfailing, took me from a girl to a woman- and he showed me what it is to be a man All that I am is thanks to him. Now that he is gone, the task of my lifetime is to live up to his example, his expectations, and his love. My father's passing comes with sorrow and grief for me, for my mother, for my brothers, and for my sisters. He was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth for so very long. We know that his flame lives on, in each of us. The days and years to come will not be the same without my dad-but they will be good days, filled with life and love, because of the example he lived for us. Your prayers, for his soul and for our family, are sincerely appreciated. My father is gone, and I miss him as only an adoring daughter can. But in this loss, and in this sorrow,I take comfort in this: John McCain, hero of the republic and to his little girl, wakes today to something more glorious than anything on this earth. Today the warrior enters his true and eternal life, greeted by those who have gone before him, rising to meet the Author of All Things: "The dream is ended: this is the morning. Earlier, Meghan McCain tweeted about the passing of her father, Sen. John McCain.

 My father, United States Senator John Sidney McCain III, departed this life today.
 I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning. In the thirty-three years we
 shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and

 All that I am is thanks to him. Now that he is gone, the task of my lifetime is to live up to his
 example, his expectations, and his love.
 My father's passing comes with sorrow and grief for me, for my mother, for my brothers, and for

 My father is gone, and I miss him as only an adoring daughter can. But in this loss, and in this
 sorrow,I take comfort in this: John McCain, hero of the republic and to his little girl, wakes today
 to something more glorious than anything on this earth. Today the warrior enters his true and
 eternal life, greeted by those who have gone before him, rising to meet the Author of All Things:
