My time on Okinawa in 1958-1959 was a most rewarding experience. My photo showing in May of 2012 went way beyond any expectations I could have imagined.

The following e-mail from a very kind Okinawan lady has deeply touched my heart, and is the greatest possible reward I have ever experienced.

Hello Mr. Bruce,

My mother called your friend and told him that we had a very good time talking with you.

Mr. Bruce, I would like to say again "thank you" very much for your valuable work.

All those smiles in your photos are so precious.

We are very honored to have a chance to see you and your photos.

You made us feel so proud of ourselves being Okinawan.
