hands in prayer
boys girls
heads bowed
red caps
flower bunches rainbow-hued
year in year out until
one day
we will all awake and with ONE glorious voice sing:
"war no more"

even when it appears seemingly hopeless
I type hope
I dream hope
I ask for hope
I live hope, even when.....

peace I wish you all, always.

One of the most moving moments while travelling was striking the peace bell in the Peace Park in Hiroshima. One single, lone sound.
