I think that what is most compelling about his speech is the quiet dignity in which he talks. I’ve never heard his story before and I can only imagine the challenges he has overcome to be where he is now.
Thanks for the post.
I love TED talks thanks for sharing this one. Lots to think about integration. Do you feel you’ve integrated into Turkey?
People say I am more Turkish than natural born Turks, lol
Thank you so much for sharing!! We, sadly had a camp here. My father had a business that hired a family from this camp. I grew up loving the Oshida’s. They were the most beautiful people of my life. I even got to play with Mrs. Oshida’s very old and very wonderful doll house complete with rice paper doors. Jim Oshida worked for my Dad until my parents moved. He then worked for another company in Delta…he grew the most beautiful African Violets one could ever imagine.
I was a child that didn’t understand their tragedy. Mr. and Mrs Oshida loved me and my family anyway! I am so thankful they stayed here and made their lives in Delta, Colorado, after the war. The richness they brought to my life is untold!
Thank you for your insight as always Linda 🙂
