The destruction was gut-wrenching, undoubtedly. What sets it apart is the will power to survive, regenerate, rebuild and be watched in awe by philanthropists, historians and others.

I’m sure the souls who departed then, are back now in the same place – empathizing, commemorating, helping their brethren to live again. They are whole again – after gathering the pieces that blew up in dust that fateful night.

They celebrate regeneration, not destruction. They celebrate the victory of hope.

city goes down

a culture rebuilt – to set

  1. We shall be looking at the photos we took on our recent visit to Hiroshima. With as many people who were there in the Peace Garden and mulling through the Peace Museum….there was barely any noise….just the hush of whispers when there was talking. It is a sacred place of hope.
