Here’s another reminder how war affects our children and would be future generations. How sad so many children suffered and died from the effects of war. It’s somewhere families can go to honor their children.

This is a must see if in Hiroshima. It is an incredibly moving monument that demonstrates why such a horrific weapon should never be used again.

The display of Chiildren's drawings and origami set off the remarkable monument with its long red cord and beautiful bell. Children were ringing the bell and offering prauers for peace. So lovely.
