Example text

Come hell or high water. I’ve carried this lesson with me throughout my life. After about six months of living in the horse stables at the Tanforan Racetrack just south of San Francisco, all of us internees were moved to long-term housing. Most of us, including my extended family, were sent to the Topaz, Utah, concentration camp. My first memory of Topaz was of pulling into the camp. The topography was flat, just a vast wasteland. The conditions of the camp weren’t that hot—I’m being punny here, because of the weather.

The fact that I was able to pick up Japanese as fast as English also astounded my mother. However, I spoke Japanese fluently because I had to communicate with my grandparents, especially my two grandmothers. My grandparents on both sides, especially my grandfathers, doted on me. ” But then their opinions are suspect anyway. I was also given the nickname of Chatterbox. I don’t know why. It’s not me, it’s not me. “My Happy Childhood That I Don’t Remember”  But the American Dream shatters and the Japanese American nightmare takes over.

But he gave up that job after that person’s head got split open with the two-by-four. He told me that he was tired of getting in between the warring factions; it was too dangerous.
