I still remember

Rain of incendiary bombs

From dictators’ greed

(It was today in 1945. The war ended some five months later with the explosion of the A-bombs. If the war continued, I’d have gone to the war myself to kill and die. Mixed feelings to live with.)

    AhsiAkira, instead you were given the gift of a long and creative life.
    Always the positives and the negatives on the scales

  2. Loved it. I am just a travel blogger recording my travel stories. In case if you are interested, please drop by my blog as well.

  3. Where you are, is where you are meant to be, or else you would be somewhere else. That’s the way it works.

  4. I have always had mixed feelings about this time. But I was no where near it, like you were. Very moving and touching–

    I can only speak for me, AshiAkira, but I am deeply deeply sorry for what happened.

  6. Can’t imagine what that time was like.
