    On a beautiful clear morning of August 6, 1945 in Hiroshima, Japan, 7 year old Howard and his brother were on the roof watching a B-29’s vapor trails coming towards them when their grandmother told them to get off the roof immediately. They reluctantly climbed down and then the bomb exploded. Mr. Kakita will talk to us about his life when the bomb exploded, how he, his brother and grandparents survived and how he and his brother were united with their parents in California years later. You can read about Mr. Kakita in the August 4, 2020 Washington Post.
