Rest in peace, Aaron Zelman

We miss you already.

Over the last few weeks I have read stirring messages from Claire Wolfe, Wendy McElroy, L. Neil Smith, Massad Ayoob, and from lots of others who were influenced by him, and now that I see the tribute posted officially at JPFO's root URL, it seemed right to note it here.
Aaron validated something in our hearts: Yes, he would remind you, it is permissible to crave personal freedom and liberty. Yes, it is permissible to stand up for righteousness and truth. Yes, it is quite alright to be unashamed and proud to be an American, and fervently hope this nation will return to the best of its roots.
For anyone reading this who does not know who Aaron Zelman is:  please, fix that.  He was one of the more important human beings of our time.
