Micah Fletcher, who survived last week's stabbing attack on a Portland, Ore., train, was grateful for the massive outpouring of support he received.
But he was also concerned. Not by what he saw, but by what he didn't see — support for the young women he stepped forward to defend.
"They are the real victims here as well," he said in a video posted Wednesday, in which he called for more financial and emotional support for the teenage girls. In the hours that followed, donations to the young women more than quadrupled, according to the donation site YouCaring.
