Welcome to Manzanar

On our last day in Lone Pine, Lonnie and I spent a couple hours at Manzanar, the Japanese internment camp which is now a National Historic Site through the National Park Service. It was a sobering experience, but learning about this part of our history is important for all Americans.

Although the original buildings were torn down after the war, replicas have been rebuilt in the footprints of the originals, so one can get a sense of what this place was like during the war years.

    A picture is truly worth a thousand words. My sister and I both moved deeply by this image this morning. It sparked a fascinating conversation that took us to many places.
