Welcome to Musing Monday!

 

Today we are reflecting on a dark part of Canada's history. Today's video is a portrait done by Jenn Weatherall of Joy Kogawa. 

 

Joy Kogawa lived in a Japenese Interment Camp in British Columbia from the age of 7-14, and now she shares her story through her writing.

 

To find work of Jenn Weatherall's work.

 

To learn more about Joy Kogawa and Japanese Internment Camps in Canada.

 

We must continue to reflect on our mistakes and learn from them in order to avoid similar tragedies from ever happening again.
