Greenlake, Seattle- August 6 starting at 6 p.m. (Lantern Ceremony at 8:30 p.m.)
This year on August 6th, as every year since 1984, ….
we will gather at Green Lake in Seattle for our annual lantern
floating ceremony honoring victims of the atomic bombings of
Hiroshima and Nagasaki and all victims of war.
From Hiroshima to Hope has been created by local peace, faith and community organizations every year since 1984, The Seattle event is the oldest and largest anywhere outside Japan. More than a thousand attendees participated again last year. The 2017 From Hiroshima to Hope Planning Committee welcomes all those who wish to come and experience the feeling of community, the music and the
sight of a thousand lanterns drifting on the lake. It offers the hope that we can resolve international conflicts without violence, and learn the habit and technique of living in peace with all our neighbors on this earth. For more information visit: www.FromHiroshimatohope.org
