"To feel the shadow of absence from a sibling is something I have felt intimately, living thousands of miles from my brother and sister the majority of my adult life. Missing everything from the big days to the small moments, compounded over years, hurts. "

"IN CHINESE FAMILIES, you greet someone by asking if they’ve eaten yet. It is love expressed as concern: Let me take care of you, let me tend to your most basic need. And the response — I’ve eaten already — is an expression of love, too. Don’t worry, Mom, I’m doing fine."

The Atlanta spa shooting deaths and rising reports of hate crimes during the pandemic have spurred many Asian-Americans to activism for the first time. Great and nuanced reporting @ByShanLi and @QiLiyan. https://t.co/Gk63DwetAQ via @WSJ

"The Chinese-American community in Atlanta held a memorial for Ms. Feng in a funeral home and then buried her ashes in a local cemetery. The events followed the wishes of Ms. Feng’s family, who were unable to come to the U.S. because of travel restrictions." 💔

One of the victims of the Atlanta-area shootings was laid to rest after her body was unclaimed for seven days; none of her mourners had met her. Powerful reporting by @estherfung https://t.co/mrDl64vJer via @WSJ

"The uptick in mobilization reflects a world newly open to defining and discussing anti-Asian racism and violence, both within Asian diaspora communities but also those outside of it." Great reporting from @timothywmartin and @DaslYoon https://t.co/oHLhpeSpPD via @WSJ
