I offer to you Icelanders, who are peace-loving and love other people, a good evening.
My name is Inosuke Hayasaki, I come from the city of Nagasaki in Japan and I am a messenger of peace at the Atomic Bomb Exhibition here in Iceland.
67 years have passed since the nuclear bombs were dropped on my country. I am brought to tears by this ceremony, as peace-loving Icelanders participate in this memorial service for the victims of the nuclear attacks. With a candle floating ceremony we bring peace to the souls of the victims.
For the people of Hiroshima, Nagasaki and on behalf of all Japanese, I thank you wholeheartedly. My sincerest thanks.Tweet
