"Even now,I clearly remembber the scenes I saw while running a way." I was surprised and frightened at wth wrds of my grandmother,who was three years old at the time. "Until that day,I dad beleced that every time a family member left the house with the words ' I'm going out',they would return with the words,'I'm back'.But they did not return." When I heard this,tears began to fall,and I could not stop shaking. Sixty-eight years ago on this day,our city Hiroshima was destroyed by as atomic bomb.Not only our bodies bore wounds;the pain penetrated to our heaarts,which for many people,ache without end.
Now,we are living inth same city,Hiroshima. The people of our city hace lived through the atomic bombing,passing on the baton of life. Along with life,there is something else we want to pass on... That is why we cannot turn our eyes away form that day. We want to know more.There reality of the atomic bombing,the thoughts of the HIBAKUSHA. We want to spread these,further and further.To the people of the world,to the future.
Peace is being able to live with peace of mind. peace is each and every person shining. Peace is everyone feeling happiness.
Peace is somthing we ourselves create. For this reason,We comvey our gratitude to the people close to us,our friends abd family. Through dialogues with many people,we learn that there are many different ways of thinking. Through sports,music,and the things we are good at,we interact with the people of the world.
It doesn't matter if the methods are different. What is important are the actions of eace and every one of us. So,let us create peace together. So tgat this precious baton may be passed on.
