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.
Whose idea is war, and who then is forced to fight it, and who are the ones dying
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
