An ecumenical group of pilgrims from the World Council of Churches crosses a street on their way to a ceremony in Nagasaki, Japan, on August 9, 2015, commemorating the 70th anniversary of bombing of the city. The WCC pilgrims 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.
