    As talks begin to stop Iran from achieving nuclear capability, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show brings listeners a cautionary tale, a story of abject horror and the power of forgiveness.

    August 6, 1945 begins like any other day in Hiroshima during World War II. As nineteen-year-old Shinji Mikamo helps his father prepare their house for demolition, there is a blinding flash and ear-piercing explosion. Right as Shinji turns toward the noise, a fireball sends him into a chaotic world of darkness and confusion. An atomic bomb has just exploded only three-quarters of a mile away from Shinji, devastating all of Hiroshima in only a few seconds.

    The story of what happened thereafter to Shinji is told by his daughter, Dr. Akiko Mikamo in her book Rising from the Ashes, A True Story of Survival and Forgiveness from Hiroshima. Dr. Akiko Mikamo who was born and raised in Hiroshima by two atomic bomb survivors, promised herself as a child to contribute to world peace and humanity. She is president of San Diego - WISH: Worldwide Initiative to Safeguard Humanity and president and medical psychologist at US-Japan Psychological Services in San Diego, California.
