Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard: Hope

Rev. Clare Petersberger, Emily Tarsell, Zinnia Epps, and a member of All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, Washington, DC

Our 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.
