Ms. Flora Lansang, known to many University of the Philippines alumni, passed away last Monday.
She and her family were long-time advocates for national independence and social justice. They were also stalwart participants in the resistance movement against Marcos. And a very good supporter of GabNet.
She inspired one of my short stories, "Our Apostle Paul." The last time I saw her, which was ages ago, apropos of nothing, she gave me what looked like a tektite ring.
We will miss her.
So many deaths these two years. An era is ending.
