RI President: Reflecting on peace

By Sakuji Tanaka, in English and Japanese

My visit to the Oklahoma City National Memorial made a deep impression on me. Walking through the rows of empty chairs, one for each of the bombing’s 168 victims, I thought of the families, friends, and loved ones left behind. The terrible event that the memorial commemorates happened nearly two decades ago; but in thousands of lives, there is a hole that can never be filled. It was a stark reminder of what violence does, and how important it is for all of us to work for peace.
