Chapter Summary

Two years have passed quickly for the author after he reached Japan, almost like the shadow of a dream since the 24th January, 1972, the day which he shall always remember as an important day in my life. As he looked back quietly on his life on Guam, the sight of the River Talofofo in the jungle came back to his mind. He drank from the River Talofofo, ate eels and shrimps of the River Talofofo, and bathed in the River Talofofo to relieve from the intolerable heat inside the underground shelter. He pays his sincere homage to, and deeply felt thanks for, the spirits of millions of people who died in this war, and ardently shares in the common aspiration of all mankind, i.e. for 'a pathway to perpetual world peace' to be opened for everyone on earth as soon as possible.
