I think the New Yorker showed the better side of life in camp. This is
My Dad's uncle (his mother's brother) Yonehisa Yamagami is near the
bottom. We have that portrait hanging at my parents' home in Denver.
The only person in our family to have a portrait by Ansel Adams and to
be in the Library of Congress! My brother looks a lot Uncle Yon.
If you're interested, there is a movie called, "Only the Brave" which
tells the story of the 100th/442nd heroes.
Members of the military who served were honored with medals more than 60
years after the war. My father in law was part of MIS and helped
rebuild Japan after the war. We went to the ceremony in Honolulu and
were uplifted by the fact that they were honored, but saddened by the
fact that so many had died prior to receiving recognition.
My mother's side of the family was lucky because my grandmother's
brother served in combat and survived the war. He never spoke about his
experiences and became a very devout Mormon after the war.
So, extreme prejudice touched both sides of my family and my husband's
family within the last two generations, but it doesn't cloud life now.
I wish people would cool down and save their energy to oppose the
government when it actually acts inappropriately instead of hysterically
protesting and trying to block everything the new administration does.
Instead of blocking cabinet appointments, they should approve the
appointment and then build a case against the person based on his/her
actions. By being obstructionists, the progressives are providing an
excuse for the Republicans if their policies fail.
