Today, the scene in San Francisco’s Mission district sent chills up my spine. Here’s how it looked, in photos …with a surprise ending.

A pizza shop:
A diner and a bookstore:

A bar & grill:
A skate shop:
A coffee shop:
A produce market:
The photo above is a candid snap of the three co-founders of my company, TINT. Tim, the CEO, is a child of Taiwanese and Thai immigrants. Ryo was born in Japan, and Nik (the guy in the middle who ruined my candid snap) is from India.
Without them, I would not have my well-paying tech job.
The Surprise Ending
I promised a surprise ending to this article. At the end of the day, when I was feeling a little down, My mom sent me these two photos.
My brother-in-law, Orhan, born in Turkey, received his US citizenship today! Congratulations, and welcome, Orhan!
If you appreciate the immigrants in your life as much as I do, please 💚 and share. It is important for these photos to be seen.
