Gen Silent screens where students voted for Prop 8.

I am told that the student body at American River College in Sacramento voted in favor of supporting Proposition 8 a few years ago. So I didn't know what to expect when I attended a screening of Gen Silent here yesterday.

Faculty organizers mentioned that a protest would not have surprised them. It was all news to me as the lights went down.

The questions afterwards were thoughtful and the dialogue with students really energizing for me.

I think their take-away was that caring for older people is universal.
