34 years ago, I was at Harborview Hospital in the trauma unit as Silme lay dying. He would be dead by the morning. We lost Gene and Silme 34 years ago but it doesn't seem that long ago. Today was a hard day. I went to see the SIFF movie - The Black Panthers - Vanguard of the Party and saw many friends from that were part of the Committee for Justice for Domingo and Viernes. The movie reminded me of what our government does to kill our movements - killing our leaders, spreading disinformation to divide us and pit us against each other, paying informants, spying and harassing us. It was a hard day today. I miss Silme and Gene still.
