Show Notes

Dear Asian Americans,

Continue telling your stories... Keep fighting for what you believe in... we live better than any group of people in the world in history. I think that we have the ability to hold onto our culture, I think that we have the ability to assimilate, and I think that with all the challenges that we face, every community faces challenges, we're at a point in time where it's better to be alive now, it doesn't seem like it sometimes, better than any time in history. We're living in, with all of its faults and flaws, the greatest nation on earth. And we're so privileged to have parents, generally that support us, if nothing else, siblings, camaraderie. And look at Jerry and Rajiv sitting here talking and having this conversation in the middle of the day when we probably should be working jobs as a lawyer and as a doctor, and we get to do this in Burbank while the sun is shining and do whatever we want. If that's not inspiration for you. I don't know what is.
