Wai Momi are the pearl waters of Pearl Harbor. This show is about peace and reconciliation among survivors of World War II.
This week in Honolulu is the Pearl Harbor 65th Anniversary Symposium, the last gathering of veterans of the fighting at Pearl Harbor. What grabbed my attention was to learn about Zenji Abe, a Japanese pilot who dropped bombs on Hawaii, yet who has dedicated his life to peace and reconciliation. Hawaii is a good place for this, as even at the time of the war, we had many citizens of Japanese descent. You can read more about Mr. Abe in the Star-Bulletin. You can also read his book, The Emperor’s Sea Eagle.
In looking through the photo archives, I saw a picture of a Japanese sub right off the beach at Bellows Air Force Base. That’s just around the corner from Lanikai, where today’s episode was filmed. It gave me pause.
