The cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan were completely destroyed in August 1945 by nuclear weaponry.  In what was once thought of as lost for 75 years before any life could be sustained, the cities quickly rebuilt and plants began to regrow shortly after their destruction, much to the amazement of the world.  Since then, both cities have dedicated the ground zero sites as Peace Parks in order to help abolish nuclear weaponry and bring about universal peace.  It is hard to describe the parks in words, which infuse a mix anguish at the events that have transpired, and hope for what could occur in the future.  Rather than discuss these sites to you how I experienced them, I believe a photos from each park would help convey the feeling of being in the two dedicated Peace Parks in Japan.
