We've already had one in New Jersey, but now it looks like the West Coast is also going to get its own version of a memorial to the so-called "comfort women" of World War II.
A statue honoring these sex slaves, at least tens of thousands who were killed or brutalized when they were sent to Japanese frontline brothels, will go up in Burbank, a suburb of Los Angeles county famous for being the site of NBC studios.
Read more at The Los Angeles Times. I don't know what the California statue will look like, but below is a picture I took last year of the touching Comfort Women statue across the street from the Japanese embassy in Seoul.
Pearls of witticism from 'Bo the Blogger: Kushibo's Korea blog... Kushibo-e Kibun... Now with Less kimchi, more nunchi. Random thoughts and commentary (and indiscernibly opaque humor) about selected social, political, economic, and health-related issues of the day affecting "foreans," Koreans, Korea and East Asia, along with the US, especially Hawaii, Orange County and the rest of California, plus anything else that is deemed worthy of discussion. Forza Corea!
