This video is dedicated to the hope that we as humanity will grow towards a more conscious and understanding future where we cease to inflict pain and suffering upon our brothers and sisters, and we work to teach our children to do the same.
Shot in Seattle at the "From Hiroshima to Hope" festival which marks the day that the "Little Boy", the first atomic bomb, was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6th, 1945, and serves as a memorial for the victims of both the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
People gather together and send lanterns out into Green Lake after dark as a symbol of hope, peace, and love. Beautiful :)
