Today is #DayOfRemembrance, a day commemorating the forced internment of more than 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry—including citizens—during World War II by Executive Order 9066. In those 120,000 were many members of my family, one of whom was my grandfather. A mantra in our community is #NeverAgain. However, in order to not repeat history, we must know our history—as individuals and as a country. The Internment, or “camp” as it’s referred to in my family, was a few sentences in my high school textbook. My education was over the dinner table, at family gatherings, and quiet moments of clenched jaws with long silences. I ask you take a moment today to learn the history of my family and my community (if you need resources, DM me and I’ll slide some your way), and the ways in which our injustices echo in the injustices today. Please join us in a commitment to never let this happen again.
