This is me, aboard the Apollo in 1968/69. I am the young blonde girl in the middle singing to L. Ron Hubbard, at the time in a condition of Liability.This is a snapshot of the original photo, which can be seen on my blog.I was one of the original Commadores Messengers, and whilst that title has little meaning for me, i expect facts to be true, and there is little true in the facts of Scientology.
A force field in the fight against Scientology injustice. A true friend, someone I had on my bucket list to meet before I died. Now that will never happen, what a tragedy.
You were there when I was in meltdown, now I see the toll of that burdon. I realize what a burdon and the toll of your back problems and pain. I am so, so sorry, wish I could have been there for you when you needed it most.
I will never forget you twitching your whiskers, with that smile, just before you were about to tell me off. And you did tell me off, and I did deserve it, but you were so sweet and kind about it.
I don't know what drove you to do what you did, but know this your blog has been a godsend to thousands of people and always will be. Love you Arnie and always will. Rest in peace Mr. Lerma.x
