DAY TWOOO!

alright, second post and im already starting to procrastinate . i promise this will be the last one i post a few hours before the next meeting though. it's just with summer school, basketball, hanging out with friends, and all other pressures of being a teenager...things can be forgotten. that's just it though...little tokyo is being forgotten. the ja community is beginning to drift from their roots and assimilate elsewhere. 

at times we forget that our heritage helped mold who we are and has given each of us a sense of uniqueness. we must strive to preserve our culture and always remember where we came from. its important to return back "home" and give thanks. if we just slowly begin to abandon it and popularity is lost, a piece of each of us is lost as well. what we need is action, for it speaks louder than words.
