Praying for Peace

I should have posted this earlier in the day, but, better late than never.





Today is the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, August 6, 1945. My parents and I visited the Peace Park there while I lived in Japan as a missionary. These are a couple of the pictures I took. I'm sorry that I didn't get the statue on the top of the "Sadako" memorial. I was taken by the thousands of brightly colored paper cranes hanging at the site.



I don't have any more words: just pictures tonight.

Peace.

A picture is worth 1000 words, indeed. Thank you!
