I S I a f f l ' l i o l o ) Heritage series Courage marks achievements of Idaho Japanese-Americans By RosalynO. Rarry CALDWELI.,--From railroad laborer to doctor, merchant, land owner; from internment camps to community positions of respect and leadership: this is the heritage of Ihe Japanese Americans which when (raced from the first immigrants to today shows a heroic people of patience, f a i t h a n d ' s t r o n g family commitment. Ir, should nol be surprising t h e n , lo f i n d Caucasian Americans who look at this achievement and then a their own sometimes turbulent ways and* broken lies turning often lod'ay to zen, to Japanese literature, philosophy or religion, in search, perhaps of calmness. These thoughts emerge after a series of six Japanese Heritage p r o g r a m s held d u r i n g (he winter session at Ihc College of Idaho. The series paid tribute lo Die many posilivc achievements of Ihe Issei and N'ifei, bul wilh a look at the hisjpry behind it, onecan only be imWessed that throughout the series p r e s e n t a t i o n of that history.

We musl feel pfeUd that we are American cozens and can enjoy the frjlfdom so few people in Ihe wprld have enjoyed and can rise lo thai place where our own talents are able lo take us." Miyasaki continued thai Ihe "day will come when a person will be judged on achievement, not on his physical characteristics. I trust in an America like this...If m i l l i o n s were willing to die for her ( t h e freedom of the United States), can'l we live for her. and work to heal her afflictions and not indulge in hale of each other?" Concerning the f u t u r e of Japanese Americans, he said "Iheirchoices of what they want to he is up to them: they can be anything they want." Miyasaki personifies what he was talking about, lie relumed a blinded veteran from Ihc United Stales armed forces in World War II. With the help of his wife, he obtained a bachelor nf science degree in agriculture from Utah Slate University, entered Ihe poultry business at liexburg and raised a family. Then he returned to school-, for graduate training in counseling and guidance and today is a counselor at the slate youlh training center, SI. Anthony Achievements of many of the Japanese Americans in this area were depicted in a slide presentation at Ihe [inal scries program, with the photos showing Ihc many jypcs of businesses and professions in which Issci, Nisei and Sansei ( t h i r d g e n e r a t i o n ) are employed.
