I will say I found that I really am ignorant on different aspects of our country and put that directly at the feet of those who create the history books we were taught from in school. The idea that children are taken away from parents, that people are sprayed with gasoline or DDT, that women had to endure gynecological procedures with no anesthesia just turn my stomach.
I sat here and watched video after video with tears rolling down my cheeks.
While I had heard of the Japanese internment camps (thank you George Takei) I did not know the full background. This all breaks my heart.
This is all difficult to hear but I know it is important to listen to and not just ignore in order to help make me a better ally.
