Tuesday, August 6th is the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. People gather at the Peace Memorial to remember, to mourn, and to call for peace. Revenge is never sweet. The killing of innocent women and children puts their blood on our hands. Desperation often ends in disaster, whether individually or nationally. We must find a way to live and love in more peaceful ways.
Shell reminds us all
Silent echos still cry out
Who will call for peace?
