Hiroshima 66th Anniversary

Colorful paper lantern are leased on to the river running through the City of Hiroshima on Saturday, August 6, 2011, offering prayers for those died during and long after the atomic bombing of the city. Japan observed the 66th anniversary of the atomic bombing with a moment of silence and the release of doves in a memorial ceremony as the nation struggles to put a different kind of nuclear disaster under control at the crippled power plant in northeast.
