August 6, Sunday starting at 6 p.m.- Seattle Greenlake "From Hiroshima to Hope"

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.
