"My father, came from Japan, in 1905
He was fifteen when he, immigrated from Japan
He, he, he worked until he was able to buy
To actually build a store"
As with many immigrants, he started with nothing and had to work his way up.
He left Japan for new opportunities, for the American Dream. He wanted his inalienable right to “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.
Did he get it?
