After 9-11, there were many people, including some of our Washington leaders, speaking of how anyone of Middle Eastern decent should be treated. Some alluded to this same type of thinking. We must learn from the past and evolve as a civilization.

As the descendant of a "prisoner" at a Japanese Internment camp, this has great significance for my family. I'd like to be able to show the next generation of our family what my innocent grandparents suffered through, to preserve both their memory and their honor.

As a Japanese man I find it a hypocritical and ridiculously savage crime America commited by forcing thousands of my people into concentration camps at the same time condemning the Nazis for their use of concentration camps. Obviously America didn't gas millions of Japanese, but forcing AMERICAN CITIZENS into concentration camps is a travesty and unforgivable. I believe making the TCDS a landmark would remind people that America wasn't so innocent as it teaches in history books, and strongly urge the Committee to do so. Note I am an American citizen, but if I lived back then I would still be forced to reside in a camp. I love America, but can't forgive its crimes against humanity or hypocrisy unless it's willing to let people know about those crimes so they won't recur. Thank you very much in advance for granting the site landmark status =) It means a lot to a lot of American people!
