Inscription.  

This Peace Tower is dedicated
to the Glory of God, and to the
common humanity that makes us one.

It is given in memory of my parents,
Shizuo and Masuo Yasui, who immigrated
to this country in the year 1902,
seeking a new life in America-the
fabled land of milk and honey. They
realized their dreams. Here in this
fair land they raised their family
of seven children. Here they lived
out their lives. They loved their
country, their fellow human beings,
and their God.

Grace and Peace,
Robert S. Yasui, M.D.

"...and they shall beat their swords
into plowshares, and their spears
into pruning hooks; nation shall not
lift up sword against nation, neither shall
they learn war any more." ISAIAH

grace.

For you who pass by, discouraged and tired,
Rest here awhile and may you be inspired.

For you who daily heavy burdens bear,
The chimes sing of faith, of love, and of hope.

For all of you whom love of God has blessed,
Resume your journey with spirits refreshed.

So assured that God's love will never cease,
Arise my Friend, and may you go in peace.
