KY: Well, I sort of feel like that those of us who stayed in Chicago as I mentioned, we're, all of this is very new but when you look at the West Coast things are established and there are some things there that I think prejudices and discrimination. And also maybe even on the part of the Japanese American, hesitancy to maybe undertake some things which they would like to. But I sort of feel like those of us who remained here, that we are not... although we live in a world of discrimination, racial injustice, but I don't think that, weren't not carrying, there's a lot more freedom. If we wanted to do some things, I think we would just go ahead and do it. It's freeing us from our past so that we are venturing into some new territory that has a lot of potential and possibility. I don't know if that's correct but I feel a more freedom and less restrictions maybe.
