    WWII Feel Good Story

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/07/13/bataan/index.html

    This is a neat story about a Bataan Death March survivor who conquered his hatred when a young Japanese American student enrolled in his art class.

    Thanks for posting Trino! I am a bit of a WWII history buff so this kind of stuff really appeals to me.

    I watched something not too long ago about Pearl Harbor and some of the American survivors and the Japanese fighter pilots came together in 2000 at PH. A lot of the Japanese people including Yamamoto were against the attack on PH. It went against the Samurai code of not attacking a sleeping enemy - they believed you should always warn your enemy before you attack so it would be a fair fight.

    Thank you Trino. I use to study WWII also and this sounds very interesting. I'd love to read the book.
