Remembrance Day

On this day in 1942, Executive Order 9066 was signed by the president allowing for the interment of 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry.  It's hard to imagine the feelings and experiences of those who were told they must leave their homes.  I made this Sashiko embroidery of my home to reflect on this part of our history.  Visit this PBS link to learn more about the interment and its effects on people today.
