The words we write leave a record. They help define us to others and to ourselves. They tell us where we have been, the struggles and joys we have experienced, and give hints at the future. When I was writing for the Juggler, I began compiling an annual list of the top 10 Pagan quotes of the year.  I find it to be one of my favorite projects of the year.

This year we seem to have struggled with identity. Some of that was defining ourselves to the rest of the world, but a good portion of it was negotiation within our intertwining traditions. Honest disagreements flared up now and then, as always, but there were also deeper questions of self-identification and marginalization.

PaganNewsBeagle Mighty Dead Edition 2014

Today at the Pagan News Beagle we are saluting seven of Our Mighty Dead -- Pagan (and Pagan-allied) leaders who passed over between Nov. 1, 2013 and October 31, 2014.

Who are the Mighty Dead? We defer to the definition given by M Macha Nightmare, “The Mighty Dead are those practitioners of our religion who are on the Other Side now, but who still take great interest in the activities of Witches on this side of the Veil. They have pledged to watch, to help and to teach. It is those Mighty Dead who stand behind us, or with us, in circle so frequently.” Today we remember Donald Michael Kraig, Judy Harrow, Morning Glory Zell, Jeff Rosenbaum, Peter Paddon, and Pete "Pathfinder" Davis. (Addendum: Sparky T. Rabbit.)
