A Hand from: A Survivor, Kazuko

“These are the hands of my 87 year old mother-in-law. She’s Japanese, and -though she lost many family members in the process – survived the fire bombings of Tokyo when she was a young girl. Her perspective and optimism offer so much hope right now!”

Justin appreciates his mother-in-law for her “gentle and tastefully persistent reminders to be grateful for what we DO have, including each other!”

Here, “she’s cooking, which is how she shares affection and meaning.”
