I thinkthatbeingadopted is a lot likebeingleft-handed. You just don’t notice it unlesssomeoneelsepoints it out. I
was constantlyhearing the comment, “Jason’s not reallyyourbrother, is he?” Not being the particularly shy and reclusivetype, I wouldoftentimesmeet a commentlikethatwithraisedeyebrows, and a “No, JasoncomesfromMars, and I was
bornrighthere on the planetEarth.” My brother, Jason, and I werebothadopted. Jason was born in Michigan and I, in
Korea. Togetherwith my parents we made a family. I can’t say that I am reallyoffendedwhenpeople see our familytogether and inquireabout it. Education has done a lot to promote the ideathatfamilies are made in manyways. Still,
there are timeswhen I wishthat it were not so obviousthat we are different.
It wasn’t until I was in my teensthat I started to realizethat I camefromanothercountry, anotherculture, and thatgivendifferentcircumstances, my lifewould be completelydifferent. I feltdifferent for the firsttime. I feltunsureabout
who I was and had a hardtimeresolvingthat. At first I denied my heritage; I wanted to be likeeveryoneelse. Fortunately
for me, I have the mostwonderfulparents in the world! Theystood by me and when I finally was ready to explore my
feelings and needs, theywerethere to guide and sharewith me. From one extreme, I went to the other, and immersedmyself in learningabout my Koreanheritage and the history of my birth-country. Slowly I movedtowards the middleground, and am now happily at peacewith who I am. I want to say, however, thathaving a supportive and lovingfamily
was essential in reaching the placethat I now am.

1963. The KennedyassassinationwouldmarkAmericaforever. So would the decisionWaltDisneymadethat day to turn
an inlandFloridaagriculturalcenterinto an epicenter of worldtourism.
DisneychoseOrlandofirstbecause it was at the confluence of two of the mostimportantthoroughfares, whattoday
are Interstate 4 and Florida’s Turnpike. Moreover, sinceWaltDisney’s originalthemepark—Disneyland, in southernCalifornia—coveredfewerthan 300 acres and was soonringedwith the suburbanblightthat its successinevitablyattracted—motels, stripmalls, and copycatamusementparks, Disneyhoped to rectify in Florida his mistake of not
makingDisneyland big enough. He set out to create a new, bigger, betterMagicKingdom. Here, arrivingvisitorswould
not be permitted to choosetheir own parkingspaces; smilingDisneycharacterswould do that for them. Besides, water in
thisMagicKingdomcould not be the tannicbrowncommon in centralFlorida. So Bay Lake was drained, the sludgeremoved, and clearwaterpumpedinto the resultinglagoon. Even dry landwould be turnedintoanotherDisneyillusion:
As you traverse the themepark, you are actuallywalking on the roof of an immense, undergroundcontrolbuildingfromwhich the operation is run, staffed, and supplied.
