July 4 travel

I was away from Hiroshima traveling with very limited Internet access for a week. Now that I’m back, I will start catching up by posting a link here to a pre-July 4 article that I did for the Seattle PostGlobe. It’s an attempt at reflecting on the national holiday as an American with Hiroshima on my mind. It’s here.

Up next: I’ll do a short post on an interview I did while up in Tokyo with a 92-year-old Catholic priest. Fr. Klaus Luhmer helped rescue Fr. Hugo Enomiya Lassalle, who led construction of the World Peace Memorial Cathedral, from Hiroshima on the night of the atomic bombing.

The interviewing schedule has been rather heavy, which is great. But there should be chances to do more writing here over the next few weeks.

    I think it is important that the city of Hiroshima has its long list of supporters accross the globe, and in moments like that I tend to think of past journalists such as Norman Cousins, Robert Jungk and Gunther Anders. I hope there are more to come.
