We can turn around
Peace can still be found
It starts in your mind
Have the faith of a child
–Lenny Kravitz, “The Faith of a Child”
Today marks 70 years since the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
Sadako Sasaki was a toddler living in Hiroshima. Ten years later she died as a result of leukemia, “the atomic bomb disease.” If you don’t know the story of Sadako and the 1000 Cranes, you can read about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sadako_and_the_Thousand_Paper_Cranes
This is our cry.
This is our prayer.
Peace in the world.
