My wife surrcumbs to a restless night. She checks her email. A message from the middle school student exchange organizer appears: Japan organizers have canceled the student exchange scheduled this month. There is fear of war and for the well being of the children.It is midnight. She wakes me to tell me. The monitor's glow shows wrinkles of concern and sadness in her face.
