なくなった被爆青桐二世 Hibaku 2nd Generation Gone!!


"Mr. Sunairi, Early this month of April 14th, I went to the park to see how our Hibaku Parasol Tree was doing, then I couldn't find it, I thought I saw it a while ago. This park had many people gathering for Hanami (in Japanese tradition in the spring time, they do picnick on the ground by blossomed trees). I feel terrible. It has gotten smaller without leaves, so I was afraid someone would step on it or kids playing succor would break the seedling...I looked for it around there for a while... I was dreaming of it growing large leaves....can I try again? Many of my friends are very sad about it. Are you coming back to Hiroshima? This is an unfortunate news....."
