“As we are approaching the 65th Anniversary of Hiroshima/Nagasaki, I am grateful that I have opportunity to share my journey of ‘REVENGE TO FORGIVENESS” at Lawrence Livermore (progenitor of atomic bomb) by the invitation of Livermore Peace Action Committee (Anti-Nuke organization) on August 6, 2010. And, one of dearest friends has arranged the meeting for me to speak at North Berkeley Senior Center on August 9 (at noon?) and I also have the opportunity to share my story of forgiveness with peace origami cranes and butterflies in honoring Sadako at Berkeley Public Library on August 9, at 4:00 pm through 6:30 pm.

She was my best friend, the only constant in a life that had lost its direction. I’d been on autopilot for so long that I hadn’t recognized that I’d been circling the same terrain over and over again.

This book is about my reawakening and three wise furry friends whose innate wisdom helped me to find my way back home.
