Hi everyone,


How are you today? Are you enjoying the start of the summer? Have you

done anything special?


Sunday was August 6th. For people in Hiroshima, this is a very important

day because it is the day the atomic bomb was dropped. This year was the

72nd anniversary. Every year there is a commemoration ceremony in

Hiroshima, but there are also special ceremonies held around the world

too. In England, there is a ceremony held in Manchester on August 6th

every year. I attended this year so I'd like to tell you about it.


First, the Deputy Mayor of Manchester gave a speech about what happened on

August 6th, 1945...

Then, a wreath was laid in memory of the people who died in Hiroshima...

Afterwards, people read some poems about their memories of the atomic bomb

attack, and people gathered to make paper cranes. Here are the cranes that

my friend and I made...

We also wrote a "peace wish" on a piece of paper and made a lantern with

it. I wished that my prayer for peace will reach the people of Hiroshima.

Here are our lanterns...

Afterwards, the cranes and lanterns were displayed in the museum along with

the UN Peace Affirmation...

I was deeply touched by the ceremony. Hiroshima was a second home for

me so the people there are really important to me. They enriched my life,

and I really appreciate that. I wish love, peace, happiness, and good

health to them and everyone in Japan. I also hope for "No More Hiroshimas."


Thank you for reading this. I hope you are all well and will look forward

to next time. Until then, take care!


Best wishes, from Corrina. ☺️
