....and I honor your pain and compassion for human suffering.

Because our government called off the war crimes trials and punishments because the U.S. needed Japan as a future trading partner, Americans and Japanese both were not informed of the full horror of the war.

There is plenty of sorrow on all sides, isn't there? Plenty of regret and remembrance and sorrow.

I write this as someone whose uncle was a POW in the Philippines for three years.. He was on Corregidor. Captured. Injured in the attack. Leg gangrenous, sawed off by an army surgeon in a cave. Tortured by memories all his life. He told us: "Never forget."
