I want to thank my wonderful editor @EmilyEakin and to acknowledge @PamelaPaulNYT and @dansaltzstein.
Emily, Pamela & Dan -- my father once sold the NYT at his newsstand, and my uncle wanted to be a journalist but never got the chance. Their stories & mine are here. Thank you.
@minjinlee11 I think there is a rare facet of beauty in a love letter to those who’ve gone before. I feel your uncle’s presence. You fixed it in place for us, and for you and yours. That is not an easy thing to do.
