So many lessons to be learned in the darkness

Sitting in a room full of people taking chemo

I can clearly see a man trying to hold it together, appear tough, not cry.
His face is as red as his sweater.
Constantly checking the progress of the drip.
Shifting his feet back and forth in discomfort.
Another older lady, looks like we’d probably stand outside and smoke together in another life; taking it like a G.
My mom in front of me; 4 days post treatment passed out from the pain it caused; the dehydration from not being able to keep down anything. The impending bone marrow treatment awaiting her. Who knows the complications that will come from that; the last two times the send her into the hospital for a few days. All of these people here for the same thing. Cancer.
I tend to pool them all into a montage of old sick people in a dim room passing around blunts until the pain goes away.

Remembering African-American Victims Injured By Police Brutality In America
Rev. Earl Baldwin Jr. (Pennsylvania): Tased By Pittsburgh Police While Praying & Giving Last Respects For His Deceased Stepson In A Hospital, Survived The Taser Attack, Has Now Sued Pittsburgh In A Civil Rights Lawsuit Over The Tasing

Reverend Earl Baldwin Jr. of Pittsburgh filed a civil rights lawsuit against police after they allegedly restrained and tased him in a hospital emergency room. Baldwin claims he was trying to pay his last respects to his dead stepson when the incident occurred.
According to Baldwin, he was trying to pray for 23-year-old Mileek Grissom in the UPMC Mercy Hospital, when officers pulled him away and tased him. “I needed to tell him his family was going to be OK,” Baldwin explained to WPXI. “I was going to do everything I could to make sure they were OK.”
Video from a hospital camera shows a distraught Baldwin handcuffed and surrounded by several officers trying to pull him away from his son, and one of the officers shooting him in the back with a taser. Officers say Baldwin was interfering while doctors tried to revive Grissom, but a family attorney says Grissom was dead and not being treated at the time.



The police department has not issued a statement about the lawsuit, but UPMC refutes Baldwin’s claim. “Clearly this was a stressful situation and a tragic loss for this family,” it said. “However, the allegations about the circumstances are inaccurate.”

Tori Baldwin, Grissom’s mother, was denied entry into the hospital at the time.
