The U.N. Correspondents Association hosted a book presentation and discussion with Dr. Akiko Mikamo on her book, Rising from the Ashes: A True Story of Survival and Forgiveness from Hiroshima, on Monday, October 26th in the UNCA Meeting Room.
Dr. Mikamo is an author, medical psychologist and daughter of a Hiroshima survivor.
Her book has been translated in Japanese, Italian and will soon be published in Spanish and Polish.
Below is an introduction to her father’s story as a Hiroshima survivor.
I reported from Baghdad in 2004. This is how US military helicopters were used, and it was terrifying. twitter.com/kannoyoungs/st…
As protesters made their way into Chinatown, military helicopters were positioned just above rooftops, sending gusts of dust into the air. A part of a tree fell, nearly hitting passerbys. The crowds dispersed down side streets. Some storefronts were shattered. #DCProtest.— Zolan Kanno-Youngs (@KannoYoungs) June 2, 2020

I stand with the Black community's fight for justice for Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and many, many others before them. We cannot accept injustice at any cost. #BlackLivesMatter— Malala (@Malala) June 1, 2020
