Keeping the Peace

People gathered in Nathan Phillips Square yesterday to mark Hiroshima Day in Toronto with music and speeches, finishing after dark with a lantern ceremony in the reflecting pool. The Peace Garden in the Square features an eternal flame, which was lit from an ember of the Peace Flame in Hiroshima, and a fountain, to which water from a river in Nagasaki was added.
