Dear Miss Breed on San Diego TV!

A story dear to my heart. Elizabeth Yamada, narrates part of the story on San Diego TV, Channel 10. Elizabeth, one of Miss Breed's children, wrote the introduction to my book, Dear Miss Breed and has become a dear friend. Also on the video, Rick Crawford who was so helpful in giving us photos and authentic newspapers with photos that didn't show up on microfilm. Elizabeth was sorry that the book was not mentioned on the broadcast...if you notice a brick with my name, it's a brick in a dedicated walk at the camp in Poston, Arizona, where Elizabeth and her family were imprisoned for three and a half years. They had done nothing wrong other than looking like the enemy. It was a time not unlike the current time, when American ideals failed.
