A Moment of Reflection

Below is a powerful segment Tom Brokaw aired this week.

George Takei commented on Pearl Harbor Day (Dec 7, 2015) ¬†“we remember the mistakes of the past so as not to repeat them. Honor history, honor the fallen, and work always toward peace, friends.”

I would love to see PBS work with George Takei to make a GREAT PERFORMANCES l PBS special of Allegiance – A New Musical so the entire country can see this powerful story he is sharing.

This is one of the most powerful segments we’ve ever seen. Tom Brokaw compares Donald Trump’s call to bar Muslims from America to Japanese internment, Nazi Germany, McCarthyism, and Jim Crow – and he didn’t stop there. This amazing video is well worth taking a moment to watch, via NBC News

2006 – Hiro’s Father was cast on Heroes

Just because the proverbial spring cleaning needs to be done, doesn’t mean it is always fun, but in this case, a few rare gems have surfaced… like running across a tv guide article from 2006 mentioning both Masi Oka (currently on Hawaii Five-O) and George Takei. I remember when that plotline came out Heroes and how much I enjoyed the casting of George Takei as Hiro’s father.

With Heroes Reborn in our future, this old article feels timely once more.
