The city of Hiroshima commemorated the 64th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on the city on Thursday.
More than 50-thousand people from officials to common people gathered today to remember the world-changing event. Though I belong to the generations after the war, I've been reading many books, heard many sad stories and watching TV programs since a childhood about this tragedy. I visited the memorial museum like many other people pay a visit to this city at least once in their life like schools throughout our country chose Hiroshima as the school trip destination or just like a family trip choice. TV program broadcasted the ceremony on live and at exactly the same time that the bomb was dropped 64years ago, many of us over the country stopped for the moment and prayed for the victims and for the world peace.
And here is the happy family-reunions by two journalists who had been finally released from the detention in North Korea after 140 days. No matter what was there behind this detention and release, I'm just pleased that they finally came back to where they belong to------their precious families.(three pictures are from Mainichi Daily News)And here is another coming home. My husband is back from Johannesburg, South Africa. It was sooo good to find him coming out from the gate and looking for me in the crowds as well. We talked a lot while we drove back to our house about his trip, his job, the cities he visited, his long-time friend as well as business partner. I feel proud of him working so close with people over there more than 15 years. I love to hear lots about this country and I mostly enjoy their highly qualified wine from Cape Town he brings home with him.
These are some news which have impressed me most over the last few days.
May peace be on earth and on every people and family.
