From the south where we saw some of the hardest struggles as foreign kids, you rose up like it was home… Now I am at the back of a car crying on my way to go comfort mom. I am so sorry, my G. I am sorry that our own killed you at home where you are supposed to be safe. I am sorry that we weren’t there to protect you. I love you so much my G,” he continued,
