One week later: A tribute to the MAX train heroes
PORTLAND, Ore. —
We learn at an early age that there are no guarantees in life. Not even life itself.
Nowhere was that more evident than on the MAX Green line train one week ago.
Witnesses say a man began hurling anti-Muslim epithets at two teen girls. And that's when three men stood up to the hate. Two of them paid for their actions with their lives. The third was seriously injured.
In the above video, we pay tribute to those men: Ricky Best, Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche, and Micah Fletcher. Best and Namkai Meche were killed. Fletcher was in the hospital for days, but survived.
