Reflections on November 3rd

Last November I embarked on producing a blog post every day.

Last November was a month of momentous events, and I was working part time and had lots of spare time for blogging. I was also in docent training last November and the old brain synapses were constantly popping and making connections.  It was a fun time.

I miss my time being my own.

Today is the 38th anniversary of the Greensboro Massacre. I lost a friend that day, a mentor, someone whose spirit I admired, whose vigor I envied, and whose intellect I completely looked up to. What might she have accomplished had her fate not been sealed by those bullets? It is a question that haunts me.

The resulting Truth and Reconciliation Commission was the first in the United States. Their website is still up.  http://www.greensborotrc.org/exec_summary.pdf

The New Liberator blog provides a good analysis. https://thenewliberator.wordpress.com/2009/11/03/the-1979-greensboro-massacre/
