Beate Sirota Gordon Dies at 89

When I had my TV show on NHK (Japan), Beate Sirota Gordon was one of the most incredible people I had ever had the honor of meeting. Our show, "New Yorkers", presented her story sometime between the mid-90s and the early 2000s. As a Japanese woman, I feel greatly indebted to her.
