August 6th,  1945 

Today is the 65th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.

"We must teach an elemental truth: that status and prestige belong not to those who possess nuclear weapons, but to those who reject them," he said. "Let us realize our dream of a world free of nuclear weapons so that our children and all succeeding generations can live in freedom, security and peace."

- U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon -

Today, officials from the USA, Britain & France,  for the first time, will attend the prayer services in Hiroshima to honor & acknowledge the anniversary.

Let us all take a moment
to silently bow our heads in remembrance

garden thoughts ...

'I sit in my garden, gazing upon a beauty that cannot gaze upon itself. And I find sufficient purpose for my day.'
