This is a true and incredible story of a Japanese adolescent, Shinji Mikamo, who miraculously survived the first atomic bombing of human kinds. He was on top of his house roof with nothing to shield him at only 3/4 of a mile (1,200m) from the epicenter in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 toward the end of the World War II. But what made Shinji stand out from most of the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or even of many other man-made disasters in our history, he never hated Americans as aggressors. He somehow saw things from a much bigger perspective even in the very strict Japanese military government's mind control of civilians during the war. As one of his three legacy-carrying daughters, Dr. Akiko Mikamo wrote his story to send out the messages of human love and power of forgiveness to remind the world our worst enemies of yesterday could become the best friends of tomorro

From his tiny community of Paradise, Ben and Jesse--his younger brother--tried to keep a spark of civilization alive so that one day, like the legendary Phoenix, a new world might spring up from the ashes of the old...

Two reluctant heroes must therefore join forces to save their world in a world torn apart... This is the first world-wide printing of this prophetic novel.

Rising From the Ashes is more than a book of religious poetry. It is about one woman’s journey, after healing for many years from the effects of childhood abuse, to continued growth in healing her spirit. Much attention has been given in recent years to uncovering child abuse and seeking to punish the abusers. However, that is only the first small step for the victim who will then often spend years and thousands of dollars to finally bring to recognition the insidious unseen effects that abuse has caused psychologically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Jolainne was one of those victims. It is easy to see physical scars and bruises, but it is very difficult to see interior scars and bruises. People more knowledgeable and competent than the author have discussed the psychological and social wounds, and she has even described her own long circuitous journey in another volume. However, Rising From the Ashes attempts to show how deeply wounded the victim’s spirit is affected. It also attempts to give hope to anyone else who has been affected by childhood abuse, especially when they recognize the spirit is the core of their being and can only be healed on a spiritual level. Because the journey seems so long, ways to acknowledge growth and progress to keep from being discouraged are often necessary. Rising From the Ashes attempts to demonstrate this progress by using the theme of seasons. A season is cyclical and so is healing. One doesn’t merely heal by first going through acknowledgement of a wound, then anger, then grief, then acceptance and, finally one is free from the abuse. No, the victim goes through many stages, often many times with the same issue. It is the same with spiritual healing. Trust is wounded on so many levels, but healing is possible and it is a wonderful journey when one can finally look back on it and see how God has really been with you all the way, even in the dark days when you cannot see or believe anything. Rising From the Ashes is a compilation from many poems over the years to illustrate the slow steady progress of one woman’s spiritual life encapsulated in a year of seasons. In one’s own life, if you can get through the dark times, you can see the silver lining. So, too, if you can get past the early dark poems of the book, you will arrive at that wonder-filled place where poems are filled with a sense of freedom and joy. The hope is that you will be able to see your own spiritual journey somehow reflected in its verses.
