Support from New Zealand

Here’s a beautiful letter I received from New Zealand. Hand-written on white blue-lined paper, drawn with great care. I have, as they asked, included their names to the online petition.

We the undersigned hereby wish to declare our support for the Comfort Women who were violated by the Japanese during World War II.

Having been in a Prisoner of War Camp with my family whereby my mother and brother died in terrible circumstances, my family and I fully support the above mentioned petition.
