Cellphoneography: Working On Peace
Japan plans for celebration at Peace Statue, the celebration scheduled for 8/9/14. There are many messages in the festivities including, educate those who are to young to remember the Atomic Bomb dropping 8/9/1945 at 11:02. The celebration is to send a message of World Peace. I think World peace is desperately needed more now than any other time in history.
One typhoon averted, another approaches.
Since WWII the Japanese have shunned all things marshal, yet policies have been set in motion to reintroduce the military back to several generations who do not know what it means.
Welcome to Nagasaki Peace Park.
In two days Hiroshima will commemorate the first atomic bomb blast. Shortly after Nagasaki will honor the anniversary of the last atomic bomb blast. Preparations are under way — a huge dome is being erected and to either side of the monument to peace, the workers are setting up two abstract images of the paper cranes you’ll find heaped and piled all over the park. Made by children all over the world, they symbolize the hope that peace is eternal.
