2015 is the 70 year anniversary after the bombing of Hiroshima & WWII. To our regret, the world is still crying. Victims of wars and nuclear development can be found around the world. We may see a tear on Buddha and sense that Jesus weeps. We will walk with hope and pray for peace toward a nuclear free world. We have a duty to pass our next generation a safe, clean, peaceful future with a smile. We will face great challenges to survive on Mother Earth from increased spread of radiation or as long as possibility of nuclear war exists. All life is born and sustained from the same source. We are one irrespective of nationality, race, gender, or age. We can strive to live peacefully and to love one another.

Our annual Interfaith Peace Walk offers the opportunity to learn more about the wisdom from Buddha, Jesus and the spirits of our Ancestors.

“Peace is not merely a distant goal we seek; it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means “–Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “ The religious basis of the non-violent movement was laid as far back as 2,500 years ago, seen Buddhism and Christianity.”-The Most Venerable Nichidatsu Fujii, Founder of Nipponzan Myohoji. Pablo Picasso’s dove with a woman’s face is still flying with his heart.” It looks like women and birds are closer to peace than men.
