Our hearts are broken for the two brave upstanders who lost their lives over Memorial Day weekend standing up for their neighbors in Portland. 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin, and 53-year-old Ricky Best were killed and 21-year-old Micah Fletcher was hospitalized with serious injuries after stepping in when a white supremacist was harrassing two teenage girls, one that was wearing a hijab. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler released a statement Saturday morning saying:
"Their actions were brave and selfless, and should serve as an example and inspiration to us all. They are heroes."
