Remembering Violet Kazue de Cristoforo (1917-2007)

Angry Asian Man posted a note on the passing of Violet Kazue de Cristoforo who was famous for writing and collecting haiku poems that capture life in Japanese internment camps during World War II.

It's one of those days that makes me appreciate how much we lose with every poet's death, but how much we gained with their lives. And I continue to encourage everyone to write, to express, to create and to celebrate these moments and to remember these stories.
