Anyone who knows this blog might find this entry odd- but – if you know me, and my take on  history, you’ll understand.

Boats & Boats filled with Jews fleeing Germany, Poland, Austria – Europe in general, were turned back by FDR time & time again because what was happening in Europe was ‘not our problem & none of our business’.

These boatloads of humans were sent back to sure gruesome deaths- FDR was fully aware of their destiny but hmmmm- risk involvement over Jews? Queers? Gypsy’s…. 

Until Pearl Harbor.

And even then it was because of Japan, who formed an alliance with Germany and Italy.

So in my weird way I look at this action of violence as the moment that enabled my relatives to survive. The very few that were left by 1941.

They say history repeats itself.

During the 80’s & early 90’s I honestly prayed for a Pearl Harbor of The AIDS War to Drop it’s Bomb.
