There is so much pride and excitement for the Cherry Blossom season in DC that we often forget the legacy of the People of Japan that gifted the trees in 1912. The "Sakura" (flowering cherry tree) is a tradition of enormous importance in Japan, so it is appropriate they were also used for the Japanese American Memorial to Patriotism During World War II, located just north of the Capitol.

A month ago on February 19, was the 80th anniversary of the date President Roosevelt signed the Executive Order that incarcerated 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II - a notch in America's ugly past of hatred, bigotry, and xenophobia. As a result, many were displaced and were never able to return home when the war ended.

The bronze sculpture of Japanese cranes entangled in barbed wire is perhaps the most distinct feature of the monument, a crude image that strikes a chord with the recent rise of racially motivated attacks against people of Asian and Pacific Islander descent.
