"When my husband died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me-it still sometimes happens-and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again. Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don't ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous-not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance. . . . That pure chance could be so generous and so kind [...] That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space and the immensity of time [...] That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me and it’s much more meaningful [...] The way he treated me and the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other and our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don't think I'll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful." — Ann Druyan, interviewed by the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry

Tuesday is the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and Transatlantic Slave Trade.

We will honour and remember the more than 15 million men, women and children who were the victims of the tragic transatlantic slave trade which lasted over 400 years. 

The Day also serves as an opportunity to raise awareness about the dangers of racism and prejudice.

This year’s theme, “Victory over Slavery: Haiti and Beyond” pays tribute to the fight against slavery in nations around the world.
