we took advantage of an appointment downtown to meet up with some friends and visit the Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty exhibition at the Japanese American National Museum
we also took in the permanent collection, with its images, model of Manzanar and an actual Heart Mountain concentration camp barrack. with the recent news events i found it especially moving. and another jumping off point for talking to the kids about racism and privilege.
thoughts i hope we will carry forward as we think about all that we are thankful for.
