You are ten years old and were born in the country in which you live, but your parents were born somewhere else. They have lived in this country for three decades, and have become citizens in this country. It is home. War breaks out on another continent, and the country which used to be your parents' home enters the war, on the wrong side. You and your kind are deemed to be a threat to national security, so the authorities take away fishing boats, property, homes, livelihoods, etc. and you and thousands of your kind are rounded up, detained in livestock stalls, and then sent to "internment camps" in different areas of the interior. Your movements have been monitored, your mail is being censored, and you aren't allowed to have a radio because it might be used to communicate with the enemy. The war ends, and your family has the option of moving farther east in this country or being deported to a country that is no longer their home.
That was close to 65 years ago, and I don't believe kids learn about it in school, and no one ever talks about it. So.... who were those people? and why did they come back?
I was born in this great country, as were my parents, but my grandparents were not. I am Canadian damn it, I just happen to look Japanese.
