Reflections from 18MillionRising

from 18MillionRising, reprinted with permission:

I went to Vincent Chin's grave today, cleaned it, left fruit and incense at both his and his parents' headstones.
I've been thinking a lot about you lately, brother. I'm the same age now as you were when you died, and as I grow and change, I think a lot about the impact Detroit has had on my life, and on yours. You didn't expect to be an icon for a generation of struggle, and you certainly didn't deserve to become an icon like this. I just want you to know that we remember.
And to Lily Chin: thank you for your heart and your organizing. You are missed. I hope you see that we remember your son, and you, and everything you gave us. Rest in power. - CM
