Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

Don’t people pay attention?

Hey! I am asking if people pay attention?

Hello?! Are you paying attention?

The headline reads “Miss California wants American military intervention in Syria.”

I am only 5-years old and even I KNOW better than that.

Miss California Crystal Lee doesn’t want military intervention. She wants prevention.

Nobody wants to hit anybody else with a big weapon. Nobody wants to start a fight. Nobody wants to send their brothers and sisters where they might get hurt and hurt others.

What she said,

I believe that, as one of the most powerful countries in the world, we do have an ethical obligation to prevent a leader of a country, who is using chemical weapons on his people.

I believe we should use Congressional support if we can and refer to the UN, because this is something that we all need to handle together.

What I hear/read is strong people have a responsibility to keep bullies from being bullies.

When somebody goes all stupid, lets call up our friends and other people who know better and make sure we are thinking straight. Then lets stop stupid people from being stupid again.

My daddy was in China once. He came upon a woman who was being beaten by her husband, right in front of him. The woman cried out, “Help me. Make him stop.”

What do you think my daddy should have done.

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
