Today, August 6, the world remembers the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. On the north shore of Green Lake in Seattle, volunteers hold the commemorative ceremony “From Hiroshima to Hope,” a hauntingly beautiful lantern-floating ritual in remembrance of the victims at Hiroshima and Nagasaki and all victims of war and violence.
