What a wonderful role model. I'm sorry that you lost both parents together, but there certainly must be a reason for that.

We visited the Gordon Hirabayashi Recreation Area near Tucson last winter. Although we did not know Mr. Hirabayashi, the display detailing his life left us with a deep admiration of his honor, dedication and perserverance. What a remarkable person he was - honorable and dedicated to righting the injustices experienced by Japanese Canadians and Americans. May his family find strength in knowing how much he was admired and by the distinguished life that he lived.

To stand up for ones personal dignity, unselfishly, in times of crisis is the the ultimate tombstone. The world needs more men like this, and less of those who simply follow orders unthinkingly, thinking there is some virtue in following orders, without first determining if those orders are just, fair, and equitable. As long as intellectual laziness pervades the world, it cries out for those like Mr. Hirabayashi, like Martin Luther, like Gandhi, who defy injustice, in any form, and in all its hordes, mobs, and multitudes.

A life well lived is a life well remembered. My sincere sympathy to Sharon, Gerry, and all the family.
