Sadako s statue
Sadako’s statue

This is our cry, this is our prayer:

Peace in the World




A habaksha s voice
A habaksha’s voice

When I passed by a streetcar. I stepped inside and saw corpses. I saw a slight movement,

I heard a tiny voice “water,water”. I got out and looked for water. I saw none…

Thirty years later, I keep wishing I could have found water for that person.

I talk about it with my loved ones and join my hands in prayer. Kenichi Nakano - Survivor

Mother, tearing at a wall as the fire closes in under the toppled house.

“Aaahhh!”

Her daughter was alive, and yet, in the end, Mother failed to make a hole large enough to save her.

Bring back peace

However, Hiroshima

Is where the Japanese people

Recovered their lives-

On top of devastation, green buds

Sprouted with

Hopes and courage

In the after –

Math of late September 1945

Among the charred ruins

HIROSHIMA rebuilt …

Like a phoenix

Two rivers meet in one place, Buried with his beloved tricycle Slept for 40 summers Now covered in rust A reminder to us all of the many years that have passed Since the bombing

Devastated, desolate and barren it once was,

But like the Phoenix, Hiroshima rose

Out of the ashes, out of the hatred.

Today it stands-a testament for all to see.

Peace is attainable, it is a hope,

a reality that could be.

Like a Phoenix

Dos rios cruzan en un vacio,

Drestrozado, desplobado, y sin vida

Pero como el Phoenix, Hiroshima resucito

Fuera de los escombros, de la oscurida y el odio.

Hoy vive-un testamento para todos ver

La paz es posible, es una esperanza,

una realidad que puede ser.
