It is amazing how war can warp the truth even many years later. What really happened is a shameful thing and thus some would just as soon forget it. But, the truth came out in the end.
I think more than forgetting the shameful past, it is time that we all act like adults and admit when wrong is done and as for forgiveness. Instead of teaching our kids to lookout only for our own welfare, we should be teaching them the power of generousity in forgiveness and generousity in love to our fellow humans.
This is a lesson that we can learn today alongside the people of Japan.
