President John F. Kennedy’s “Peace Speech”
June 10, 1963
In June 2014, I flew to Honolulu to meet the Peace Boat and a few friends from my 2006 voyage aboard the ship as a voluntary English teacher. While the ship was docked for two days, I was fortunate to share a most memorable afternoon with eight atomic bomb survivors, traveling aboard the ship to share their stories around the world.
