Honoring Pa Lee Klo in the Clarkston Community
We, in the Clarkston Community, participated in a walk of solidarity and respect for Pa Lee Ko and his family. Pa Lee Klo was walking on Jolly Avenue in Clarkston, from his home to a neighboring apartment complex to visit friends, when a car drove by and an unidentified person began shooting out the window at people in the street. He was almost immediately killed.
Pa Lee Klo was 20 years old, and arrived in the United States this past year as a legal refugee, having been forced out of his home country of Myanmar (Burma) because of that military dictatorship’s political and cultural persecution. He is survived by his mother, who still resides in a refugee camp in Thailand, and his brother and sister-in-law, with whom he came to the U.S.
