BlazeTV

She was held in a Japanese internment camp...

In the spirit of "honor, courage and love," Glenn Beck shared a poignant story with his viewers on Thursday evening, detailing the life of Riyo Sato, a Japanese American artist who, in 1942, was sent to an internment camp per an executive order from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Her watercolor entitled, "Good Ole Summertime," was exhibited at the De Young Museum in 1943, while Sato was sequestered away in the depths of various internment camps -- one in which she and and her family were forced to live in a converted horse stall for over three months.

Despite enduring these hardships, Beck noted that Sato conducted herself with honor and courage for the duration of her life and that she would go on to teach art, and create art "with love." She was also staunchly pro-American, never losing her love of country even after the atrocities she suffered.
