Suzuka Nakamoto diary titled "Hiroshima"
We go to school on August 6 every year, although it's during summer holidays.
It's the day of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony.
At 8:15am, we observe a moment of silence.
At night, we have Toro Nagashi Ceremony.
Now I can enjoy singing, I can laugh, because of the 'Peace'.
This year, I've turned the 1st grader in middle school. Sasaki Sadako-san, the girl of the origami-cranes about whom we've learned at the class of peace-education in elementary school, passed away at the same age with me.
She only lived for 12 years. She must have wanted to live longer. She must have wanted to do more and more things.
I listened to 'inori' of Kumiko-san, and that made me think of Sadako-san again.
With gratitude for being alive, with thankfulness for being able to do what I really love -- singing!, I'll do my best in the coming event.
