I believe it is essential to bring awareness and to educate young people on the horrors and the irreversible and devastating consequences of nuclear weapons. Thirty years after my father wrote Sumiteru Taniguchi’s story,  he would be proud to know that his book has never been more relevant. I support wholeheartedly Mr Taniguchi’s life commitment to promoting the abolishment of all nuclear weapons. As the daughter of a fighter pilot who fought in World War II,  I wish for my children and grandchildren that they be able to live a life without war and without the fear of nuclear weapons and for humanity never to have to endure such horrors again.
