The Magic of Hiroshima, Japan


Spent an hour at the peace memorial and other than that chained to my hotel room writing my book.

Needless to say, to visit Hiroshima now is special given N Korea situation. The Peace Garden is OK, but the museum inside is moving (and disturbing). It was interesting to be snuggled in with all Japanese people watching a little film about when America dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima.

Outside it all there’s a “Flame of Peace” that won’t be extinguished until every last nuclear weapon on earth is destroyed. Sadly, that day seems farther away than ever.
