What does PEACE mean to you? -Thinking from the people and activities in Hiroshima-

The word Peace.
Of course it is a state without war, but isn’t it actually broader and deeper than that?

For example, the beauty of the vast ocean is due to the nutrients flowing from the mountains, which also grow because of the rain produced by the ocean.
Our daily life is also a time of “peace” when the people around us, the natural environment, and our own mental balance are all in harmony with each other.

We are often at odds with this balance, and this often leads to conflicts. Hiroshima was burned to the ground in the atomic bombing, and we lost our precious, normal days.
However, thanks to the passion of the people and the blessings of the mountains and sea that nurture Hiroshima, the city has recovered and is sending a message of peace to the world, and new challenges are being born with an eye to the future.
It is a movement that can be described as peace = harmony, not only from the perspective of humankind, but also including all ecosystems.

In Hiroshima, a city of peace, why don’t you think about the meaning of Peace once again through encounters with people and activities in the mountains, the sea, and the city?
