    I just finished reading “Canned” a memoir by fellow half Korean, Franklin Schneider. “Canned” just got published last month (October 2010) and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Mr. Schneider is a top notch writer, humorist, and social commentator. This book is one of a kind and hard to describe, though I did post a customer review on He mentions his Korean mother in the book, and makes a few allusions to being half-Korean, but mixed ethnic identity does not play a significant role in the story.

    I was born in Seoul, Korea in 1956. My father was a US Army soldier, of course. My father was already married to a woman in New York State. So, when he unexpectedly died in 1960 while stationed in Korea – needless to say that my mother had a hard time raising two Amerasian children in South Korea alone but she did. We came to United States in 1970 and settled in Indiana. So, the story goes. I very recently found purely out of curiosity. I am very happy to find out that so many Amerasians are doing so well. I certainly have much to learn about the lives of other Amerasians. I just wanted to say thanks to you all. I plan to continue learning about you. I must say that your beautiful faces bring smiles into my heart. Thanks a bunch.

    I am the father of a half-Korean child living in Bermuda (on of only 4 half-Korean and half-Bermudian children I have been able to identify). I am glad to know that you are all out there waiting for her and I hope your community grows and propers.
