The story would have had no meaning if Keiko had not been quirky. I applaud any story that prompts the reader to examine prejudices and acceptance of others and themselves. We can always learn from our own history and that of other cultures. Examining how biases and prejudices began and how the “other side” feels is an important step to changing our own actions.
