Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard: Hope
Rev. Clare Petersberger, Emily Tarsell, Zinnia Epps, and a member of All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, Washington, DC
current Gallery Unicorn art exhibit is comprised of images drawn by
children who survived the atomic bomb blast in Hiroshima over 60 years
ago. Moved by the horror, members and children of All Souls Unitarian
Church in Washington, DC collected a half ton of pencils, crayons,
paper, erasers, paste, and paper clips and shipped them to three schools
in Japan. The children of the Honkawa School responded with a gift of
two portfolios, each containing forty-eight drawings that they had made
using their new art supplies. None of these drawings depicted the
trauma, fear, or sadness they felt in the wake of the atomic bomb. All
depicted the hopeful vision these children had for their future. This
morning, we celebrate the historical relationship between students and
teachers in Hiroshima and a Unitarian Universalist congregation in
Washington, DC. We celebrate what hope looks and feels like. Through
both the drawings and a dance by Zinnia Epps, we celebrate where we find
hope when hope is hard to find.
