SGI-UK Commemorates Hiroshima Peace Day

A Hiroshima Peace Day Commemorative Meeting was held at the South London National Centre on August 8. SGI-UK members in South London area met to commemorate the 65th anniversaries of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, to reflect on the profound desire of the survivors that it will never happen again, and to hear inspiration from a faith talk based on SGI President Ikeda’s 2009 Proposal: "Building Global Solidarity Toward Nuclear Abolition."

Following an extract from the SGI DVD "Testimonies from Hiroshima and Nagasaki – Women Speak Out for Peace," Alex Giles delivered a speech stating that we can definitely create momentum toward the goal of nuclear abolition and further to a lasting peace through taking action by spreading awareness and inspiration to others.

Rachel Cardy, accompanied by Ed Walton on the violin, sang her own composition "Never Again," which reached deep into the audience’s hearts and consolidated their determination to move forward.

SGI-UK will hold a national Hiroshima Peace Day event on Sep. 4.
