Postcards: Hiroshima Peace


Dear Mom,

After experiencing the immense sadness of the Memorial Museum, we visited the Cenotaph and its eternal flame. Japanese schoolchildren approached us with interest, adorable in practicing their English: “Hello. How are you? Where are you from? What is your favorite food from Japan?” Such forgiveness is incredible.
