... as time goes… Our last call was the Peace Park in the city, the site of the Atom Bomb which struck all those years ago, a very physiological view on it all, very much acknowledging the Japanese were responsible for many dreadful things, but sincerely hoping it could never happen again, and well Japan has learned, never being involved in war again…yet, others…well they haven’t learnt a thing, so on it goes..
