Part of a children's choir that sang during a memorial ceremony in Nagasaki, Japan, on August 9, 2015, the 70th anniversary of the day the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the city. Participants in the ceremony included members of an ecumenical group of pilgrims from the World Council of Churches who each came to Japan to see for themselves the results of the bombings 70 years ago, to listen to survivors and local church leaders, and to recommit themselves to new forms of advocacy for a world free of nuclear weapons.
