New Life

There is a poem, “We Shall Bring Forth New Life,” that tells about a baby born in a dark and crowded basement in the immediate aftermath of the Hiroshima bombing. It is based on a true story. This may be old news for some people, but I only learned of it today.

Its author, Sadako Kurihara, died over the weekend at the age of ninety-two.

March is women’s history month.
