Remembering this day in history 70 years ago -August 6, 1945

20150806_070557 20150806_070711 Early this morning we made our way by streetcar with our 1000 origami peace cranes to participate in the 70th anniversary commeration ceremony at Hiroshima.  With our new friend Thomas, we found ourselves in the middle of a peace protest lead by Buddhist monks.  We then found ourselves with thousands of others from all over the world who were there for the same reason as we…to remember, reflect and hope and pray mankind will never allow this to happen again.

20150806_070810 …to remember those who lost their lives on this day…  It was a hard to imagine the so many lives were lost and the landscape would be so devastated in the blink of an eye.
