Sample text

Hideo seemed to be digesting what I was saying, but didn’t respond. I tried a different approach. ” Still no response. These were hard questions for him. So I said, “I’m asking you because in some ways I was a lot like you when I was younger. There was a time when I was a little lifeless but I realized that I didn’t know the cause. I began to see that I had taken on my father’s sadness; just to share it with him. ” Hideo appeared to listen intently to my self-revelation. And as he often did, Hideo considered my words for a long time before responding.

Through more questioning I found out that after finishing junior high, Hideo had mostly stayed at home for the past 3 years, getting a high school diploma through night school. Now he had decided to take a part-time job and his anxieties had reemerged. He felt socially awkward and excessively nervous and didn’t know how to reach out and make contact and open himself to people. And he had a sense of urgency. He was approaching his 20th birthday—the ritual time of passage into adulthood in Japan.

He sensed the trouble I was in for as the only Japanese kid in an American town where Japs were seen only in war movies that we were shown at the Boy’s Club. I was fair game when the lights came on and the excited kids found a real live Jap in their midst. My dad had trained me with boxing lessons before sending me off to the Boy’s Club, where tough kids were sure to be waiting for me. He was right; the bullies were there. But my boxing skills had carried me through my childhood. Once I had bloodied the face of one tormentor and sent him home crying, going to the Boy’s Club became a lot easier.
