“Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche and Ricky Best” by Manvinder Singh 

My heroes. 

You are martyrs in the movement against racism and bigotry and Islamophobia in America. For this generation, you are our Mississippi Freedom Riders. May we all have your courage in the face of adversity. You did what each of us should do. My heart is broken that standing up for what’s right cost you your life. It’s just not right. I’m afraid, though, this loss is a painful sign of the time we are in.

We will honor your life and your death every single day. We must. I will never forget you and what you did for these young women.
