Sharing Mana‘o

At first glance, the black-and-white photograph appears rather unremarkable, sad as it might be. The U.S. flag-draped coffin in the center indicates a military funeral; 30 or so mourners stand somberly behind several large floral wreaths. In the background, a simple wooden building bears a small sign with the words "BUDDHIST CHURCH" stenciled above a row of Japanese characters. At the head of the coffin, next to the Buddhist priest, stands a young soldier, presumably, like the deceased, a member of the nisei (2nd generation Japanese-American) 100th Infantry Battalion/442nd Regimental Combat Team.
