Meet The Heroes Of Portland [Video]

Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche were killed while protecting two teenage girls who were being harassed on a Portland train. What they had in common, according to friends and family, was a willingness to put others first and stand up to wrongdoing. Micah Fletcher, who barely survived the attack, is an avid poet whose works have addressed racism, bigotry and social justice.
