Surviving Hiroshima

When Spring Hill Middle School teacher Charlotte Lloyd saw her class’s interest in the subject of Hiroshima develop through reading memoirs and stories about World War II, she seized the chance to have Keiko Fore come speak to her class. Fore, who has lived in Laurinburg for 44 years, was 12 years old and attending school in Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945.  She relayed her experience of that day and its aftermath to two classes of seventh-grade students last week. Lloyd asked Fore to speak to the class in order to bring to life an event decades removed from her students’ lifetime.  For full story click here.
