Khizr Khan is a Pakistani-American lawyer and the father of the late Humayun Khan. He spoke at the Democratic National Convention. The views expressed are his own.
(CNN)When I took to the stage to speak at the Democratic National Convention last week, I did so to honor my son, Humayun, who was killed 12 years ago while serving in the U.S. military in Iraq.
