We have in common being half Italian & having amazing relationships with our grandparents. I love & miss them so much. My great-grandparents from Italy fled from there to get away from Mussolini. They came to America & my Great-Grandfather's brother escaped to Canada for he was forced into the army while suffering from breathing conditions. My Aunt's great-great Grandfather & His brother escaped to America after the English murdered their entire family when they attacked Ireland. My grandparents fought in WWI & WWII. The stories of the great depression were very sad. It burns me up when these kids today in the USA whine about their "oppression" and the such when they don't know a damn regarding real struggles from true bigotry & turmoil. It sickens me people today vandalizing War Monuments of the soldiers that fought to keep fascism out of America --but it's scary how such leadership is seen to be welcomed. They know nothing of what negative impacts it can bring to our existence... As you've seen in some of my past community posts, we agree on the dangers of censorship and the evils of cancel culture. Very sad how so many are easily submitting to group think and the evil behaviors & outcomes it brings.
Thanks for sharing! Great video!
Many of these are the ideas that I am trying to work through in Red Koi. Eiko is confronted with the fact that her clan and her world is not as black and white as she believed it to be and wanted it to be. There is innocent blood on the hands of her father and she must somehow reconcile that man with the father that doted on her, trained her, and taught her everything she knew. People are NOT purely good or evil and this desire to sum each other up as one or the other is so dangerous.
