Finding Harmony in Hiroshima, Japan


When I visited Hiroshima, the initial feeling was sadness.

But then I saw how the city has moved forward, and how the memories of devastation have become an inspiration.

I remembered these words:
“Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”
– Albert Einstein


Today, the city is both a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and a memorial to peace.


“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”
– Yoda


I rang the Peace Bell after this lady, and its sound joined the chirping of the birds in harmony, sending a message of peace.

As I walked around the park, I began to feel a sense of peace, inner peace, and I felt the sadness lifted from me.


Master Yoda was right after all.

Harmony. You can find it, even in the least likely places.
