What does it mean to be half. I consider myself "half". Yet the term is racist for sure and reminds me of all that can never be changed here until a whole new generation of harfus gain control in positions of power....hard for any whose names are not written in kanji and even harder for any who look most different. But until that day, when the government allows us resident harfus to vote; until the day when harfus are truly seen first for their ability and not their appearance...we are living in an isolated camp, a hollow between 2 mountains with one leg stretched wide to one mountain and the other leg stretched out to the other. Perched between 2 worlds and accepted totally by neither.Unable to move for fear of losing one or other or both worlds.
