Saki Nagae attends the Nagasaki University in Japan. She’s also a member of the Nagasaki Youth Delegation, whose focus is peace education and the abolition of nuclear weapons. She is here for ten days as a student intern/volunteer, visiting Pearl Harbor and other community organizations to help develop new peace programs back in Nagasaki.
Part of her goal is to get young people involved.
The survivors are passing away," she said, "[so we are] trying to create something new, to involve the young generations. This place has lots of activities here, going to the Missouri, [and] good opportunities for people to think about what happened.
The war started at Pearl Harbor, and it ended in Nagasaki. I think there’s a meaning to connect these two places together and create something new for us in peace education," she said.
