White, 299Nagahama Neru
Today, August 9th,
It is 73 years since an atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.
As well as reverently praying for happiness in the next world
For those who made the sacrifice,
I offer sympathy to all those
Who are suffering even now.
I hope this will be a day when we feel at least a bit
That enjoying the life we are living
Is something we will naturally do.
