Children from the houses surrounding me started peeking out from behind their doors and their parents’ legs wondering who that white girl was.

The girl that was holding my hand a few minutes earlier started calling out,…

She taught you right from wrong, showed you the kind of parent you’d want to be (or maybe the kind you didn’t want to be), and helped you when you were upset. I’m…
