CTD40: 40 stories for 40 years

CTD Celebrates 40 years

2018 is a big year for CTD, in part, because we are turning 40! To celebrate our ruby anniversary, we present the CTD40 blog series, which will collect stories from our friends, colleagues, founders, supporters, and the people we serve about our shared history.

A Happy Birthday message from David Borden

David Borden is an award-winning artist, writer, and educator. Once, long ago, he sold everything and moved to Morocco for five years. He is often described as unconventional, irreverent, and indomitable. His first graphic novel, And Yet We Rise, was featured on Fox7 News. The story is about coping with the short, but profound life of his oldest daughter, who passed away just shy of her fifteenth birthday. She taught him to laugh loudly, face every day with courage, and dare to dream. He lives with his wife and daughter in Austin, Texas. He’s the faithful pet of a very demanding cat. His website is https://scribblefire.com.
