John Birge called this piece to our attention this morning (Aug. 2). Thank you, John. And thank you, Brian. It's an honest, touching and beautiful letter. To stand in that Peace Park is something always to remember. The children still make origami cranes, lest we ever forget. The bullet train, completed not more than 20 years after the total defeat of Japan, is a monument to their spirit, and the human spirit, which at its best transcends disaster. The accident victim in the story will rise again.
