Hiroshima, Japan Trip
During a 9 month consulting assignment in Japan, I was fortunate enough to visit Hiroshima. I think every U.S. citizen should visit Hiroshima. It is a sobering experience. In other places in Japan, I found people to be friendly, and always courteous. In Hiroshima, I found people to be more distant. One young man was hostile. I think he did not know I understood his words.
