@BH-community you make me feel so old - only 6 years ago for a school trip
DD's new Japanese Language teacher is not going to take them to Hiroshima at all, where as the teacher who has just left (a former Japanese national) had it included in the visit. DD won't be visiting with school, we are going ourselves as the school trip was put off until next year - at the end of the year when she will be overwhelmed with the final Year 12 exams.
I'll start to practice making cranes now, we have been given some lovely origami paper by our last exchange student - I think the little ones can make some too for us to leave at the Sadako memorial as well. I just read that the last crane ever folded by Sadako Sasaki now resides in a memorial at Ground Zero - donated by her elderly brother. Now that is touching.
