Remembrance Ceremony

On Sunday November 13, the sun beat down on the immaculate rows of graves, graves framed by red rose bushes that seemed poppies dancing in a cordial breeze. Ministers from four faiths, a dozen or so embassies and various organizations, such as the CCCJ turned up at the Hodogawa Cemetery in Yokohama, to remember each soldier whose young stride--and these were very young men, their gray headstones shout--was cut down by unfeeling war. 

More than a hundred and thirty Canadian souls, some from the concentration camp that was set up in distant Hong Kong, are anchored in Hodogawa.
