World Peace Day in Steveston – check out the photos

World Peace Day - musicians played on the beach and Fish Out Of Water danced as we prepared the prayer boats and candles for the water

Still Moon had a wonderful day in Steveston yesterday. We spent the afternoon folding origami boats and cranes and talking with people about World Peace Day, Hiroshima 66 years ago, prayers for world peace and prayers for world water peace. Our first family of many many families was Japanese and they really appreciated the opportunity for their children, and they helped us remember how to fold cranes. Cranes are traditional to fold  as a prayer for healing. Ground Zero in Hiroshima is a beautiful park and all the trees are laden with clusters of 1,000 cranes that have been folded as prayers for peace and that no one else will ever suffer the horrors of a nuclear bomb. We also added folding origami boats as prayer for World Water Peace.
