MinnPost profiles ILCM Executive Director John Keller:
“[D]uring a question-and-answer session, a woman in the audience rose from her seat.
“I don’t have anything to ask,” she told Keller as she fought back tears. “I just wanted to thank you for all your service to the immigrant and refugee communities in our state.”
Keller stood there, motionless, without saying a word.
The woman continued her remarks, which she eventually ended with a four-word sentence that left many in the room — save Keller — nodding:
“You are a hero.”
