What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 47 in a series – “…living forever inside barbed wire…”

September 18th, 2019

“Despite her parents’ many lessons on seeing the good in every situation, after two years in Wyoming, Obaachan could no longer force herself to believe that those good things were enough. When she imagined her son spending his childhood at Heart Mountain, going to school with all the other war babies, graduating, and then finding some menial work around camp, as my grandfather and Obaachan’s Papa had been forced to do—when she pictured him living forever inside barbed wire, she shuddered.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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