My essay was different from the others, and I want to thank the editors for allowing me to fully express myself over the course of 2000 words. I am the one that is different, a father who is no longer a father, but is still in some ways a father. My only child, Josh, died from cancer at 16. His courage lives on and you will get glimpses of that from my essay (it was also reprinted in the Toronto Star and now another magazine in Canada is also going to reprint it). It will be hard to read it, but on the other hand, some readers have been incredibly positive in their compliments to me.
It's a very interesting, professional anthology.
