Serving in Hiroshima

Toward the end of World War II, U.S. forces dropped two atomic bombs. One fell on Hiroshima, Japan. The damage was extensive, and the death toll was high, but the facade of the city does not give evidence of the mark left on the psyche of its people. A Pioneers team of Caucasians and Asians work there in the city. Though Hiroshima is known as the “city of peace,” and the people consider themselves ambassadors of world peace, this Pioneers team is trying to introduce people to an everlasting source of peace, one donut at a time.
