Undeniable Internment Camps quotations

I spent my boyhood behind the barbed wire fences of American internment camps and that part of my life is something that I wanted to share with more people.


I was six months old at the time that I was taken, with my mother and father, from Sacramento, California, and placed in internment camps in the United States.

You know, I grew up in two American internment camps, and at that time I was very young.

N. S. Khrushchev established his supremacy in the U.S.S.R. after post-Stalinist alarums and excursions (1958-64).

We have our difficulties, true; but we are a wiser and a tougher nation than we were in 1932. Never have there been six years of such far flung internal preparedness in all of history.

Prior to his takeover of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini was camping near Paris, giving daily news conferences to a fawning international press corps without a murmur of complaint to France from the United States about the disaster it was coddling in the incredibly naive liberal belief that this extremist cleric would be an improvement over the Shah.

The creative process is also the most terrifying part because you don't know exactly what's going to happen or where it is going to lead. You don't know what new dangers and challenges you'll find.

Without doubt, you have to leave the comfort zone of base camp and confront an entirely new and unknown wilderness.
