What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 45 in a series – “I just couldn’t wait to get out of there.”

September 9th, 2019

”But what would it be like for a child to grow up in a small, dusty room, with no meals ever taken together as a family at a kitchen table, no trips to the grocery store, no family excursions, no memories except what was permitted within that barbed-wire enclosure? Wouldn’t it be strange to discuss democracy, the Constitution, After we found out we were having a baby, maybe something clicked in me,” she says softly. “It’s hard to explain, but all of a sudden I started growing so tired of everything.” She shakes her head, folds her hands, and turns to look at me. “I just couldn’t wait to get out of there.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

What I'm Reading: Those were hakujin beaches. Whites-only beaches.
