My mother, who survived WWII as a civilian in Japan, asked this question in her memoir, Cherry Blossoms in Twilight. This week I have a guest post about war on fellow memoir author Gwen Plano’s blog. War and its effects are sadly always pertinent, and much on my mind now as I read the latest news and remember this month the anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan and of the end of WWII.
I like Gwen’s previous post, Can we build a bridge between our differences.
Gwen was featured on my blog a month ago in A Memoir of Overcoming: Gwen Plano and Letting Go in Perfect Love
