Building Peace: A Good Samaritan Story, Live!

May 22, 2012 | The Following is the most recent update from JoAnn and Larry Sims, volunteer directors at the World Friendship Center in Hiroshima, Japan.The family made reservations to stay at World Friendship Center (WFC) in Hiroshima months ago. They came from Adelaide, Australia. The couple was brave by my standards traveling with a little girl barely two years old. The little girl had strawberry blonde hair and dancing blue eyes. The mother was a Flamenco dancer and the father was an opera singer.They arrived during one of our English conversation classes so we were surprised when our office manager rushed to us as we entered the office. ì Our guest just arrived and he is very sick. What shall we do?î I asked for more details and was told they had moved their luggage to the room and were resting.I knocked on the door and the father rose from his futon looking very pale and drawn. I asked him how he felt and what had happened. Their stay in Kyoto the past two days had turned out to be two days with some sort of stomach flu, serious cramps and extreme weakness. The mother had recovered in one day but the father seemed to be worse, unable to stand straight and was barely able to walk to their room. I asked him if he wanted to go to the hospital and that it was just across the river, about a five-minute walk. Could he make it? He said he thought he was better, that laying down had helped him feel stronger. Are you sure, I asked? He was certain. I then looked straight at the little girlís mother and asked, what do you think? She said he should go to the hospital because this was day 3 and he wasnít any better. Read more »
