When I was in United States of America,
I was along with a Judge
who is the 3rd generation of Japanese-American.
I was just a 20 years old "girl",
really very normal undergrad student.
I still don't know why he took care of me so much.
but he supported me like a daughter
until the very end I left the USA.
or maybe I should say opened,
the world where was completely different from the camps life.
My community was expanded obviously
thanks for those experiences I started to consider about my carrier more seriously.
Anyway, I cannot stop writing stories what he did for my stay in the USA.
Whenever I felt difficulties his word comes up in my mind.
"There are so many people who are talented much more than me.
Not only talent but also they are "natural born rich"
or no suffer from their race.
Maki, please never give up anything you want to try or achieve in the future.
This is the only one reason why I could be a Judge and stand here like now"
Thank you so much Judge and I miss you.
Tons of the worlds you showed
Numerous precious words you left
are still supporting my life.
I love you so much and miss you.
You are always in my heart
I believe that I can see you someday.
Love, Appreciation and Laugh.
