The World Friendship Center - Hiroshima: 75 Years Later

It’s been nearly 75 years since that first use of an atomic bomb in Hiroshima, Japan, on August 7, 1945 (Japanese time.) Hundreds of thousands of people died because of the initial blast and radiation related illnesses directly after the bombing. Deaths due to radiation even extended to years later.

There have been many programs about the devastation caused by the atomic bombing that day in Hiroshima and the bombing 3 days later in Nagasaki, Japan. It was on August 7, 1965, 20 years after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, that Barbara Reynolds founded the World Friendship Center, dedicated to providing a place where people from many nations could meet and share their experiences. It’s a place where people can come together and reflect on peace and a world without nuclear weapons.

Brent Carlson, host of ''Brethren Voices,'' made a trip to the home of the World Friendship Center and met with two Brethren Volunteer Service Workers who are currently directing the activities of the center. Roger and Kathy Edmark from Lynwood, Washington are serving a two-year-term in Brethren Volunteer Service, directing the activities of the peace center. In many ways it resembles a ''bread and breakfast,'' and also serves as a gathering place to hear and learn of the frightening aspects of nuclear war.

The music of Mike Stern of Seattle, Washington is also featured in this program. During October 2020, the World Friendship Center will be hosting a concert for Mike Stern who performs folk songs of peace, justice, wonder and compassion . (WWW.Mikesongs.net) This program features a performance of ''One World'' sung, by Mike and Eriko Kirsch, in Japanese, to the sights of the Peace Park of Hiroshima.
