Re "Atheists 'Out of Closet' in new billboard campaign" (Our Region, Dec. 2): What a wonderful article is in today's paper about the atheist billboards. I am 70, but when I was 16, I would have loved to come across such evidence that I was not the only person in the world who, in deepest sincerity and honesty, had to call herself an atheist. Over the years, after earnestly exploring, studying and trying out other religions and ways of thought, I find myself still an atheist, more confident and happy with my choice and who I am than ever. It would have been an even lovelier journey, especially during my younger years, to have been able to share it with others asking similar questions and considering all the possible answers. The billboards are a wonderful idea in reaching out. I am sure they will have positive effects for many.
