What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 27 in a series – “…it was possible to forget that the world was at war, and that they were its prisoners.”

“Even the guards seemed interested in the game. From their towers they would watch, their machine guns resting on their laps. When an especially good play was made, they would clap and holler their support. In these moments of excitement, when a man dashed around the bases, when a young boy sprawled into the dirt to make an impressive catch, when the crowds cried out in excitement, it was possible to forget that the world was at war, and that they were its prisoners.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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