the hope of a lasting peace
A rainy day in Hiroshima and walking in the commemorative Peace Park, you realize that all park sculptures express the intense pain and suffering, the hope of a lasting peace and emptiness when everything breaks . Each one has a mountain of origami cranes that visitors have left in their views. In one corner of the park is the peace bell, the ringing means world peace is desirable. I tried ringing the bell, at first very gently so as not to disturb the Japanese silence, sound was negligible. The second time I rang it harder, the clang echoed in my head for several seconds and Japanese ve roamed the park looked at me and smiled.
