A memorial brick for the Murray-O'Hairs

Friends,

Howdy again, I'm Joe Zamecki, a loudmouth Atheist activist operating
with pride and energy in Austin, Texas. I have an idea that I think
folks can easily get behind. So I'm sharing. :o)

The Murray-O'Hairs, Madalyn, Jon and Robin all three do not have any
gravestone, and the location of their grave is not known to the
general Atheist community. Many Atheists feel that this is a travesty.
So an effort recently began to establish a memorial monument, which
was way too expensive, and that effort failed.

Now I think we can memorialize the Murray-O'Hairs in a permanent way,
out in public, for an affordable price, and with very little hassle.
With a memorial brick. An 8" X 8" red brick with their names inscribed
on it, placed into the ground with other such bricks, in perpetuity,
at a public park in Austin. I have researched this and found the
perfect location and the perfect group selling bricks.

The brick will cost $500. and it's a one-time cost, and it will be
placed permanently at Lou Neff Point, a beautiful part of Zilker Park.
Here is where we'll be sending the money, the Trail Foundation, which
is a secular organization dedicated to improving and beautifying the
hike and bike trails along Town Lake, in Austin:

Here's a Youtube video I made yesterday that shows the bricks and
surrounding areas. I also give more info about it:

Here's the Facebook like page about the project, which needs more
"likes" and fast! :o)

For folks who disliked Madalyn, this way of memorializing them is
harmless, positive, and really a small gesture. I don't foresee any
theists having a big problem with this. The cost seems to be the only
real hurdle.

I believe this would be the first and only memorial to the
Murray-O'Hairs existing in a public place. So let's do this thing!
$500. to make a difference in the legacy of three hard-working Atheist
activists.

Thanks for reading this! :o)
