 “I was far away from Okinawa, celebrating Christmas in the southern hemisphere, when I bumped into another party-goer and turned to apologize. I saw a beautiful woman dressed in a kimono and before I could stop myself, ‘Sumimasen! Gomenasai!’ popped out of my mouth. The shocked and pleased look on her face made me thankful for the skoshi Japanese I have learned and the beautifully foreign, yet familiar, words that will stay with my for a lifetime.” -Sarah Forte
