Remembering Hiroshima

This evening, I joined a group who remembered the people of Hiroshima by releasing lantern boats on the River Clyde. The river was calm and still as the lanterns floated away in to the sunset (shown in the following video).

During World War in 1945, the United States dropped two atomic bombings against the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. These two events are the only use of nuclear weapons in war to date.

The memorial events take place across the world to promote peace and raise awareness about the campaign for nuclear disarmament.
