Sadako s statue

Sadako’s statue

This is our cry, this is our prayer:

Peace in the World

The remains of the dome

The horror

The horror

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

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

Blue flower growth

Blue Flower… growth

Peace memorial and eternal flame

They said that for 75 years nothing will grow—

Peace memorial and eternal flame

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 …

Butterfly life continues

Butterfly… life continues

Like a phoenix

Two rivers meet in one place,

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.

The dome the future

It was not me

I have no memory

of when or how

why or to whom


It is me

My children and those

Who come after

For Now…

I have seen



Now, I shall tell…

…peace prevail.

The dome … the future

Sunset another day

Sunset … another day


Push through the earth


We will never

be buried

A sprout seeks the sun

As each restores

their burnt souls


knows the way to repair
