China under siege

Tuesday, April 25, 1944

Today Grandma took me for a walk. She stopped to talk with lots of people along the way, including the wife of the Chinese laundryman near her store. The woman told my Grandma about the Japanese invasion of China. The war may be going well in Europe, the Russians may be advancing toward Germany, but in the Pacific, the outlook isn’t clear. While General MacArthur hops from island to island closer to Japan, on the mainland, two Japanese columns are converging and trapping Chinese civilians trying to flee. The Chinese are appealing to us in America to help them.
