Excerpt – “I heard Papa say that President Roosevelt was going to speak tomorrow. He also said that he heard that Japanese soldiers might invade California. What then? I thought. What would become of us? Whose side were we supposed to be on? Such questions rang in my ears. Our world inside the larger world of America was suddenly not safe anymore.”
