R.I.P. Doi Takeo
I was sitting here, and my mind kind of wandered back to my high school days. I imagined being on the field with a bunch of my classmates. Then I realized that one of the classmates I was imagining is currently married and pregnant. Now I just feel old and sad.
I never really thought about how many Japanese-Americans still living today were probably prisoners of internment camps during World War II. I just found out my mom’s coworker was at the camp in Manzanar, CA during that time. George Takei was at a camp in Arkansas and later the camp at Tule Lake, CA. Wikipedia has a long list of writers, painters, and other talented people that spent time in internment camps. How come no one makes any noise about the internments, as unfair as they were?
