These days

I sit and cry while watching things online. This came up during research for my next artists' book, but I got distracted (away from my work) and ended up backing the project. It's a documentary film about comfort women who were used and abused and thrown away (this is putting it very lightly, considering the atrocities) by the Japanese government and military during WWII. Most of the comfort women (women who were raped and brutalized by Japanese soldiers) were from Korea, but there were stations all over Asia, so the director of the film has traveled to various countries to find stories of the women who are still alive. Back if you can, and then get back to work!
