‘Brave and selfless’ Oregon stabbing victims hailed as heroes for standing up to racist rants

Even before their names were released, one word repeatedly came up to describe the men who were killed in a

stabbing Friday on a light-rail train in Portland, Ore.: heroes.

They had tried to intervene, police said, after another passenger began “ranting and raving” and shouting anti-Muslim insults at two young women.

That’s when the ranting passenger turned his anger toward those who sought to calm him down. He fatally stabbed two men and seriously injured a third, police said, before fleeing the train on foot.

“Two men lost their lives and another was injured for doing the right thing, standing up for people they didn’t know against hatred,” Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said in a statement Saturday. “Their actions were brave and selfless, and should serve as an example and inspiration to us all. They are heroes.”

The mother whose son was killed defending a Muslim teenager against a White supremacist embraces another with a smile three days later. A son with the power of courage to not be a silent bystander before bullying and hate, and the woman with the power of love who raised him that way, who does not regret the path of love but doubles down on it. This Ramadan we were given a gift, the gift of faith in humanity. May God rest the son and bless the mother for how they have touched us all and continue to teach us all.
